SUMMER IS BACK!
Young Rembrandts is collaborating with a TON of local businesses this summer to provide even more imaginative and educational summer workshops. We're partnering with cooking clubs, engineering classes, math tutoring and even sports programs. Young Rembrandts is all over the Northwest Indiana area and we're providing specialized drawing lessons to energize your child's summer experience.
If you have yet to register, there still is time!
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. This program is a great supplemental, not replacement, to your child's school art class. Most art classes are typically media-based, and drawing is seldom taught, thus Young Rembrandts is a great addition to all art programs!
Young Rembrandts is a partner of the Afterschool Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that all youth have access to quality and affordable afterschool programming. Afterschool programs keep children safe, help working families, and inspire learning. To learn more, visit www.afterschoolalliance.org

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.
6. My child's school does not have the program, can he/she take the class at another elementary school?
Unfortunately, in agreement with the elementary schools, we cannot allow children that do not attend the school to come in for an after-school program. This is for the safety and security of all the students. However, if you are interested in your child's school obtaining Young Rembrandts, please be sure to contact us and the school to express your interest.
