Creativity Encouraged!

Fly on the Wall Art School is an art space for youth ages 6-18. Our mission to teach classic art skills in a way that protects and develops the creative voice and style of each student.

The San Mateo County Health Office has not changed its guidance on “Social Bubbles.” This means that we are still going to have 3 Week Summer Camp Sessions. This is to ensure that we maintain “Stable Groups” of campers for the safety of them and their families. We highly encourage our families to continue to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing and following quarantine guidelines.

We are continuing to use Plexiglas and paper to create a safe work space. We take temperatures, wear masks when not in the individual work areas, and wipe down all materials. We have replaced serve-yourself popcorn for packaged snacks and have good ventilation. COVID seems to be a built-in course in creative adaptability. Please check in here on our website to keep up with any changes.

Call us at 650-713-0751 if you have any questions.


A New Chapter


We, Franklin Hagarty and Ethan Hofmayer, are excited to carry the torch passed on to us. As former Fly students, we were positively influenced by the artistic community so beautifully fostered by Susan Carkeek. Now, with ten years each of educating and mentoring youth on the coast, and as artists ourselves, we look forward to carrying on the tradition of helping young creatives find their artistic voice. We will be offering new classes and camps and workshops so stay tuned for updates.
