Young Rembrandts’ Mission
A Passion for Teaching Art to Children
At Young Rembrandts, it's our mission to raise generations that value the power, the passion and the significance of art.
Vision and Values
Young Rembrandts has a passion for art and children. We bring excellence to every aspect of our daily interactions. Guided by personal integrity and respect for the individual child, we communicate with understanding, realizing our greatest calling is to cultivate the human spirit.
Power of Drawing
"The basics for understanding any concept can be delivered through art. Art is the only content area that takes advantage of the brains naturally occurring inclination to look for patterns, colors, shapes, lines, depth perception, sequence and order."
- Kenneth A. Wesson
Young Rembrandts focuses on teaching children to draw, using demonstration and a structured step-by-step process. This method of directed drawing gives young students instruction on how to draw increasingly complex images at a crucial time in their development. Through the process of weekly instruction students are exposed to a wide variety of subject matter, artistic concepts, art history and mastery of their materials.
The development of foundational skills for pre-school and elementary students is critical. There is a common misunderstanding that creativity happens without instruction, that artistic creativity comes forth naturally from a child or adult. Young Rembrandts believes true creativity comes forth when mastery of core skills is combined with original thought. Young Rembrandts helps children develop the skill, tools and confidence to continue participating in the arts.
Young Rembrandts has a passion to dramatically increase the abilities and therefore the number of children that participate in the arts. Our students receive a foundational art literacy that invites them to continue an appreciation of the arts throughout their lifetime.
