Young Rembrandts SE Phoenix

Young Rembrandts brings fun and educational drawing classes to your children! After-school drawing lessons are available as enrichment to all students in Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Queen Creek and Tempe. Our preschool drawing, elementary drawing and cartoon drawing classes complement and expand existing art programs in local Maricopa County school districts, private schools and charter schools. Our classes are built to be fun, but children who participate in local Young Rembrandts drawing classes increase academic skills, fine motor skills, social skills, hand and eye coordination and confidence. Young Rembrandts is a great activity for preschool and elementary kids looking for fall and winter activities. We partner together with your local schools and community centers to bring you easy afterschool clubs and activities.

Young Rembrandts Develops the Whole Child

We Do More Than Just Draw

Intellectual Development

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.

Fine Motor Skills

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.

Creative Outlet

Art provides children a place and way to share themselves, to show what’s on their mind and illustrate their ideas.

Academic Performance

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.

Social Development

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.

Out of the Box Thinking

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.

Drawing Classes Just For Kids

Our Curriculum

Young Rembrandts was created to be fun.

Our drawing classes offer child-friendly and relevant subject matter to spark interest and increase knowledge retention. Through the process of weekly instruction Young Rembrandts students are exposed to a wide variety of subject matter, artistic concepts, art history and mastery of their materials.

Elementary Drawing

Young Rembrandts’ elementary drawing teaches children to break complex objects into foundational shapes. As they learn how to deconstruct and reconstruct images, the experience, repetition, and variety of engaging and relevant subject matter bring them to increased levels of mastery in drawing - and in life.

Cartoon Drawing

Young Rembrandts cartooning classes follow our same quality, step-by-step method, with the added fun and excitement of cartooning. While cartooning is fun, playful, and engaging, children gain mastery in a unique drawing style and improve their core learning skills.

Preschool Drawing

Young children gather, collect and process more stimuli in the preschool years than at any other time in their development. Young Remmbrandts prepares their brains for more advanced learning. It is fun, encouraging, and will maximize development, to better prepare them as learners.

Community centers, summer schools, and summer camps provide the perfect setting for our Young Rembrandts' workshops.

Everything is going so well with YR here. Ned is great! You totally took care of us with such a great instructor. The children are LOVING the class. Teachers have commented, and I have had children show me their pictures or tell me about their drawings. It is just the best! Truly, I can't think of anything that would make this any better.

My 6-year-old [son] took in person Young Rembrandts classes while he was attending school in Chandler and learned a lot and loved it. I was searching for something he could do from home this summer and found the online, [on-demand] YR option through Kyrene School District.


I love the relationships I develop with my students, especially when they sign up for YR year after year. Fun to see their growth in skills and creativity. Love when they are proud of their finished masterpieces.

YR Teacher - Southeast Phoenix

We signed up for Young Rembrandts online to give our kids a structured activity during Summer break as they did not go to a city camp this year. We thought online lessons were a fantastic idea for the Summer as both parents work. Our children did several sessions of in-class drawing and significantly grew as artists with their skills and perceptual awareness.


Thanks for offering these amazing [on-demand] lessons!


I love when students give me their own work as gifts from home!

My Easton. [Young Rembrandts] changed his entire 2020 after a very rough academic year. [Mrs. Zea] gave him confidence and believed in him. We will always be grateful. Easton still loves to draw!

Heather - Parent, Chandler, AZ

My daughter was able to independently access the online classes and follow through. This was helpful, especially while my husband and I are working.


As I walk classrooms, students will come up to show me their artwork. They are so proud of what they have learned and accomplished. We have enjoyed having Krysta, and she has been giving the students their supplies to take home this week. Our Summer Academy has been enriched with your program. Thank you so much for all you do in making a difference in students' lives.

Online has been a little more challenging. [They would] forward to where they can just try to copy the drawing. They then realized that they must watch to learn. They take their time, and the product comes out better than they hoped!


We initially started taking classes through my daughter’s school two years ago. Our daughter loved the lessons and continued to use the strategies she was taught while drawing her own creations. We were so excited to see that Young Rembrandts was offering online classes! Being able to access the lessons at home, on our own schedule, has been incredible. As parents, we have enjoyed participating in the lessons with her. As a teacher myself, I was really impressed with the instructions and extra learning information that was provided with each lesson. The video clips and facts about the animals and/or settings just added another level of interest for our daughter. We can’t wait to see what the next online session will bring to our home! Thanks Young Rembrandts!


It is so rewarding when a challenging student gets excited about lesson and really gets into the drawing. You finally see their full talent and passion for drawing!

YR Teacher - Southeast Phoenix

Harley is wonderful and the kids are loving the art projects! They are producing some beautiful artwork! During the school year only our 4th-6th grade students get art once a week, and even then, it's only for 30 minutes, so this is a real treat for all of our students!
