Next stop: Artful life skills
The Artful Living Kids workshop series provides creative, hands-on learning experiences for kids ages 4-12 in a Montessori-inspired, homeschool environment with dedicated and passionate guides. Kids learn art, sewing, cooking, fermenting, baking, designing and making while creating a fun and supportive community. Our approach is simple, we share what we love. Join us for our next event and experience the Artful Living Kids way.
Meet Ms. Kim
Designer Kim Jensen created the the Artful Kids project as a gift to her children and yours. Ms. Kim loves to bring the places she has explored into the classroom, inspiring her students to be both creative individuals and critical thinkers. Museum-quality arts and crafting, traditional food making, and a large dose of grace and courtesy round out the days she prepares for her student community.
Certified Yoga Instructor
Ms. Kim celebrates her passions in life by sharing them with the community. She studied Visual Communications at Art Center College of Design and was awarded the Certificate of Excellence for her ground-breaking work with Art Center College of Design Kids. She co-runs The Visual Team, a design firm based in Annapolis where she creates beautiful things for organizations doing beautiful work like Alternatives Federal Credit Union, Vuori, Ithaca College, ToC Creative, and Durand. She opens her home studio to create meaningful learning opportunities for our Casa students. When not working, she's on a bike or a yoga mat.

Taught in a bilingual and racially diverse school setting while growing up in suburban Ohio, Kelly gained an international worldview and appreciation that led to grad school and a career teaching Elementary ages in DC-area Montessori schools. A love of naturalism and guided walks at the USBG and Rock Creek Park inspired training and forest therapy certification just this past summer in Sonoma, CA (Google: shin rin yoku). Over the years, leading after-school tutoring, birdwatching clubs, percussion classes, and French lessons have helped round out students’ daily lives, while supporting families, and growing as an educator.
