About Us

Art with Us was founded in 2017 as a way to express Mrs. Kim's passion for teaching art to kids. We believe teaching is not one-way communication but mutual interaction between teacher and student. We provide private and small group art classes for students who are ready to learn and create! We are currently based in Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland area.

Elin Kim received her Master of Arts degree in Ehwa Woman's University with Industrial and Advertising Design majors in 1991. She has more than 25 years of graphic design experience in Korea and the USA. She served as Chief Creative Officer at Flow-In Design, Inc., a design agency she founded in Korea. Mrs. Kim's passion was always aligned with art and design. After she moved to the United States, she wanted to use her art and design experience in the art education field.

Elin introduced her children to the world of art and taught them how to appreciate it. To stay inspired, Mrs. Kim studies deeper on art education and how art can impact on individual's heart. With her caring and inspiring classes, Art with Us wishes you and your children can experience similar to what she and her kids experienced. 

Dear Future Students,

Stay Creative. 

Observe what's around you and get inspired! Art museums and galleries are great for inspiration, but observe what's around you first and see how vibrant the world is! Staying creative is not difficult with us. 

Express Yourself.

Learn how to express oneself in artistic way with us. Sometimes words cannot convey all the feelings and thoughts you have. With our tailored class curriculum, you will learn how to express your true self. 

Practice Makes Perfect.

I'm sure you're familiar with this saying! There is is no magic shortcut in our art classes. To refine what
you have, you gotta practice. We will practice with you...until art becomes part of your life. 

Push Your Limit.

Once you learn how to express yourself on the paper, you will have so many ideas to put on your sketchbooks. In your sketchbook, there is no limit. Draw and paint your dreams and ideas.

Have Fun.

Last but not least, have fun! It's your class, and we are here to help you.
Share fun and crazy ideas you have. We want to learn more about you and your ideas!
