Nature Art Camps
When: July 10-14, July 17-21, and July 24-28, 2023
Where: Mt. Hood Town Hall
Do your kids love getting messy, making art, and exploring nature? If so, this is the art camp for your 5-10 year old! Nature Art Camp is led by me (Jordan Kim) and early childhood specialist Anna Diem. During our week together we’ll spend each day focused on different aspects of the natural world. Together we’ll explore the subject through hands-on science experiments, field exploration, and artistic expression. Campers will create loads of artwork, collaborative projects, new friendships, and so much more! Each art project will tie back into our connection to the natural world and each other. Join us for a week of letting our imaginations play together!

Arts in Education Classes
Where: A classroom near YOU!
I often teach in schools through Arts in Education of the Gorge or by contract directly with me.
I can teach virtually or in person (for local schools only). I have a wide repertoire of projects to choose form and can often customize a project to fit a timely topic or specific timeframe that you are working with.
I have worked with students of all ages and am always excited for projects involving a connection to ecology or science. Let’s work together!
Hire Me for Private Art Parties!
When: Any kind of event – your kid’s birthday, a family event, business group, or mama’s night out!
Time: 2-3 hours
Where: Columbia Gorge – I’ll come to you!
If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind creative experience for your next party of gathering, let me hook you up! I LOVE doing custom art events for kiddos, birthdays, business groups, family reunions, mama’s nights out, or any other occasion.
Contact me, and I’ll work with you to choose a theme and timeline that will work best for your budget and audience.

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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
