Our Home

Brightworks is housed in a 9,000 square foot warehouse with 18-foot ceilings in the heart of the Mission District of San Francisco. A former factory space for Best Foods Mayonnaise, our school has morphed from an empty warehouse with a bare-concrete floor to an ever-flexible school designed to be changeable depending on what the children and the arc curriculum call for.

The Brightworks home provides students with two-story work and meeting spaces for each band, a paint and construction paper-filled art studio, an observation science lab stocked with magnifying glasses and magnets, a workshop with real tools for kid use, a library with quiet space for reading, a no-shoes cork floor for movement and play, a fabrication lab with a laser cutter, and a kitchen and dining room for community gatherings and lunch.
