Classes During COVID-19 Pandemic

As we continue to work through the changing COVID-19 pandemic, I will adapt my classes to best fit the times.  I hope to increase the number of in-person classes I offer, while following stringent safety protocols.  I also plan to offer online classes, and/or shift in-person classes to a virtual format should COVID safety measures warrant  a change.  I believe we need creativity and connection now more than ever, so I hope you will join me in whatever capacity suits your comfort level.

I lead art classes, workshops, retreats and other creative experiences for just about anyone!  Whether you are looking for an experience for kids or adults, for fun or personal growth, a week-long camp or a 1-hour class, a private team-building event or a lesson in public schools – there’s something for everyone!

 

All Classes Include:

  • Professional artistic guidance
  • Natural elements or themes
  • Mixed media experiences
  • Opportunities to connect
  • A playful, inquisitive tone
  • An emphasis on the journey
  • An invitation to express oneself
  • Competently organized steps

Jordan Kim

Hi!  I’m Jordan Kim and if you choose to take a Found & Rewound class, I will be your instructor. My mission is to create art and experiences that inspire us to honor our connections to each other and the natural world. 

I have a BS in biology and two minors – one in chemistry and one in studio art.  I also have a masters degree in Environmental Management.  Needless to say, I love to learn.  I worked as an ecologist for over 15 years while I built my art business on the side.  

Art helps me reconnect to the rhythm of the natural world and stay grounded. I would love nothing more than to know that one of my classes or my art helped you feel more attuned to the abundance in your life too. My wish for you is a life filled with sweet simple moments, people you love and a connection to the natural world that supports us all. If guiding you through an experience where you get to reconnect to yourself and engage in some creativity can help make that wish come true – my work here is done.

You don’t have to take my word for it…

So much fun! I was quite reluctant to leave my first art prints but ultimately loved how freeing it was. Helped to foster more creativity and less attachment. Already excited about April!

-Jan P.

Jordan, it’s so fabulous that you are offering these opportunities for women to create, collaborate, laugh and share in community! I’ve participated in both of your art nights now, and I’m recognizing more of my own creative process and feeling more free to express!

-Anna D.

So. fun! Everyone had a really good time. Full value!! I love how accessible collage is, you could literally use anything and turn it into really fun colors, textures, art pieces. scrap mail is more valuable to me now… 🙂 Even just seeing how to make those prints- you don’t need to be really skilled to create very cool patterns and colors. I think everyone felt successful and in it together! 

-Kris S.

Thanks so much!  Our kids certainly had a blast at nature Art Camp.  We really appreciated getting the daily photos and emails summarizing their activities.  They are already asking if they can go back next year! 

Thrilled parents!
