Mi Kyoung Yun’s Biography

 

 

     I graduated from Art University and majored in a Western painting in 1983. I started teaching an art at Hongeik academy for a year before graduation.

 

     A year after, during I run my own art academy, many of my students won the prize for drawing contests so I was recognized by some elementary school and I taught elementary school students as a special art teacher in 1987.

 

     For extending my talents, I studied about Japanese and Illustration design in Japan for over 4 years. And then I went to the U.S. to get married my boyfriend who goes to the same university and major.

 

     I’ve had two children, 20-year-old girl and 15-year-old boy since at the end of 1992. It was absolutely hard time almost every each day because I wasn’t good at English and there were no any siblings or family in the U.S.

 

     Although I studied specific major, I couldn’t do the art project a lot and I couldn’t afford to send my kids to day care service.

 

     I barely started doing art project teaching some students at home studio during I breastfed my first child.

 

     However, it was pretty hard to get a great work of art raising two kids and suffering from immigration life with my husband.

Roughly, I couldn’t draw because whenever I drew, I usually showed my true mind through the painting and I even hesitated to show my painting to others.

 

     In the meantime, some of my students won the grand prize whenever they participated in art contests and it made my art class bigger than before. I taught over 40 students and many of my students, who were taught by me, went to outstanding art university.

 

     One day, president of New York Artist Association Joo- Okgeun advised me that “No matter how you suffer from your life, don’t put the brush down and keep drawing little by little whenever you have a time. Besides, I volunteered to teach an art at Zen Center for 15 years and also I did it at my daughter’s elementary school for several years on art parts. Through this volunteering, I think I could control my mind and I’ve drawn bit by bit. In consequence, I’ve exhibited my painting through group exhibition since 2000.

 

     Although I’ve been working Adult home care service now to support some art supplies, I feel great about helping adults. Of course I’ve been teaching students as an art teacher now. I’ve dreamed of being a painter and an art teacher since when I was 10 years old. I hope to live my life to the full in order to create such a remarkable painting.

 

     For me and for my family…

 

Unlock the possibilities of children: Artist and Educator Mi Kyoung Yun

 

 What is the role of being an artist in this world? One of many roles can be unlocking the possibility of the children for better future. Ms. Yun is one of the artists who accomplishes being an artist. She used to tell me “I love to teach art because of the limitless possibilities art offers to reach the young minds in our schools. It is my tallest priority to help the students whom I teach to achieve their tallest potential. With art, students are free to create and express who they are. With art, students can be shown the achievements of people from all corners of the world and from the beginning of time until the present and even looking into the future. Art is constantly evolving, constantly changing, can be interpreted again and again, can be a personal journey or a joint endeavor. Art crosses curricular and touches all aspect of life. Art is truly the language of all humankind.”

 

Here are Ms Yun’s brief foot prints from the past.

Artist Mi Kyoung Yun went to Chu Gye University for the Arts, majored in a Painting. She graduated in 1983. While she was in the University, she taught children and teenage students in various art classes at Hongeik academy for a year in 1983.

A year after, she opened her own Art Academy for Children. Many of her students won the major prize for drawing contests, so she was recognized by some elementary school. Soon, she was invited and started to teach at an elementary school, as a special Art teacher in 1987. 

For extending her talents, she studied in Japan, went to Tokyo Community Art College

for Illustration program for four years. She came to the U.S. to get married her long term boyfriend who used to be her classmate at the University in Korea.

She has two children, one daughter and one son. It was absolutely hard time the first few years in the US, almost every day she wasn’t good at speaking English and there were no other close family members other than her husband and her children.

Although she was an accomplished artist back home, she couldn’t work on too many art projects because she couldn’t to even afford to send her kids to day-care center. So, she started a home art studio, teaching children for part time, while she breast fed her first child.

However, it was pretty hard to get a great work of art raising two kids and suffering from immigration life with her husband.

Roughly, she could not do drawing because whenever she drew, she usually showed her true mind through the painting, and she even hesitated to show her painting to others.

In the meantime, some of her students won the grand prize whenever they participated in art contests and it made her art class bigger than before. She taught over 40 students and many of her students, went to outstanding art university.

One day, president of New York Artist Association Joo-Okgeun advised her that “No matter how you suffer from your life; don't put the brush down and keep drawing momentary by momentary whenever you have a time.” Besides, she volunteered to teach an art at Zen Center for 15 years, and also she was doing it at her daughter’s elementary school for several years on art parts. Through this volunteering, she thought she could control her mind, and she could draw bit by bit. In consequence, she exhibited her painting through group exhibition since 2000.

Although she has been working adult home care service at the moment to support some art supplies, she feels great about helping adults. Of course, she has been teaching students as an art teacher at this moment in time. She has dreamed of being a painter and an art teacher since when she was 10 years old. She hopes to live her life to the full in order to create such a remarkable painting.
