I hope Young Rembrandts will be offered again next school year. My daughter loved the program and I was thrilled with what she brought home. She has always loved art but it seems the program was able to give her the foundation she needed to build on. Thank you.- Liz North Carolina Parent
My family and I have been SO pleased with the work she brings home from Young Rembrandts. The bird houses really look like bird houses and the snow men have personality! Thank you very much for a totally positive experience. I would definitely recommend your program to others.- Margaret Illinois Parent
Daniel loves the class!!!! We love the fact that he is learning different techniques. He and his Dad are very artistic. Of course, Daniel still has to learn perspective, etc., but he we think he does pretty well on his own.- Suzanne Texas Parent
I am thrilled that the Young Rembrandts program is now being offered in the Cleveland area. We were involved in the program in Westerville, OH and my son LOVED the class. He enjoyed the teachers and embraced their instruction. I was so impressed with the work he brought home and the pride that he illustrated in presenting it to us. We are excited to be a part of the Young Rembrandts program here in Cleveland, where I know my son will continue to thrive in this form of art education.- Jenn Ohio Parent
The day after my son's first Young Rembrandts' class (on a Thursday), he said -When do I go to Young ‘Brandts again, mom? -It’s every Wednesday, Honey. -Oh. I wish it was every Wednesday AND every Thursday. He wanted to go again the next day so badly.- Tamara Illinois Parent
The Young Rembrandts art program was a worthwhile experience for my son. Even after the first day, he was able to see progress in his drawing and be proud of the result. It was a week of confidence building through learning to master basic art techniques--all in a fun and supportive atmosphere. He especially loved learning to draw the cartoon animals. We look forward to participating in another class with Young Rembrandts.Dottie B Ohio Parent
My son just finished taking your Anime class through Fleming Island Plantation. To say he loved it would be an understatement. It's the most animated (no pun intended) we've seen him in weeks.- Melissa C. Florida Parent
My daughter Serena participated in your princess summer art workshop. Even though, she was a bit 'under the weather' during the class, I can see a vast improvement in her drawing and coloring skills. I am amazed at the interest she now takes in 'art'. Before the class, she rarely colored or drew and if she did, it would be for just a few minutes at a time. Now, she will sit and work on her pictures for extended periods of time.- Andrea Pennsylvania Parent
In Kindergarten Matt never wanted to draw. Now it is all he wants to do! Thank you so much for inspiring him!- Jill Illinois Parent
I want to thank YOU for having such an awesome program! We all think it is great and the kids are flourishing! I surely found what I was looking for... the other day my son took one of his cars, laid it on it's side and step by step, drew it. I was so impressed. He said I just kept looking at it, and drew it piece by piece! Yeah!- Susan California Parent
Thank you for offering this course. This course is helping my son in so many ways. He receives occupational therapy and we have seen improvements since he began. His therapist told me this class really helps people with fine motor deficiencies. I am really enjoying the art work and the teacher is wonderful. Thanks again.- Debbie, California Parent
June has loved your class. It was fantastic. We have seen a remarkable advancement to her drawing and especially her attention to detail in everything she encounters. Thanks for all your hard work.- Victoria H., Parent
Young Rembrandts Develops the Whole Child
We Do More Than Just Draw
Drawing with Young Rembrandts develops the whole brain by combining the three learning styles that children use to learn effectively. Therefore, Young Rembrandts students develop learning skills in ways intense academic classes cannot teach.
Young Rembrandts students make huge advances in their fine motor skills every week. Harnessing these skills is imperative for young learners to excel in traditional education settings. When fine motor skills increase, the hands can finally do what the mind can conceive.
Art provides children a place and way to share themselves, to show what’s on their mind and illustrate their ideas.
Young Rembrandts drawing classes stimulate and develop the right side of the brain through art. These weekly drawing classes offer child-friendly and relevant subject matter to spark interest and increase knowledge retention, never losing sight that children learn best when they are engaged and entertained.
Art allows children to get in touch with their emotions, to express themselves, understand others, reflect on their work and learn from their mistakes. Not all children have the opportunity or desire to experience the social aspect of team sports. In the Young Rembrandts classroom, all kids can do and excel at a solitary activity while belonging and building those relationships in a “team-like” environment.
Art helps children learn to think for themselves, consider multiple viewpoints and explore a range of possibilities. In the Young Rembrandts classroom, students are encouraged to see things in a different way and thinking creatively. Mastering this type of thinking is essential to who children are and their future social and academic success.
