Frequently Asked Questions
1. Are classes held at my child's school or at your location?
Our trained and qualified teacher will come to your child's school or community center once a week and teach a one hour class.
2. What supplies will my child need?
All supplies are provided.
3. What type of art will my child be doing?
Young Rembrandts is a drawing-based class. Your child will draw and color one lesson each week. Our media is color pencils, markers, and sharpies. No need to wait for the art to dry.
4. How do you teach the lessons?
We are the only after-school art enrichment program that teaches art, using a methodology specifically designed to improve student perception, visualization and organizational skills.
At Young Rembrandts we teach children to draw - the fundamental skill of all visual arts - using a sequential, ordered process. As a result, students show dramatic improvement in their drawing abilities, expand their art vocabulary and art history knowledge, demonstrate patience, discipline and focus, and improve their attention to detail and sequencing skills.
5. My child has taken Young Rembrandts before, will this class be different?
Our classes maintain a similar structure, but our lessons are always new. We repeat concepts, but we have five years of lessons, so your child will always have a fresh subject to draw.

Young Rembrandts offers 3 distinct drawing programs.
Preschool (3 1/2 to 5 years): Young Rembrandts provides a strong educational foundation for young learners. In addition to expanding young students' image vocabularies, our curriculum helps develop fine motor skills and learning skills that are essential to future classroom success.
Elementary (6 to 12 years): Our elementary-age curriculum is designed to teach basic to advanced drawing skills, art techniques and vocabulary. Students learn advanced art techniques including portraiture, perspective and color theory, as well as art history.
Cartooning (6 to 12 years old): Fun, exciting, and energetic. This delightful program combines Young Rembrandts’ innovative, step-by-step drawing method with light-hearted subject matter that engages children, their sense of humor, and their vivid imaginations.
Of course, above all Young Rembrants is FUN! We intentionally offer child friendly and relevant subject matter to spark children's interest and increase knowledge retention, never losing sight that children learn best when they are engaged and entertained.
