WHEN and HOW did the Power of Drawing get started?

We are more than just a 60-minute kids drawing class. Young Rembrandts started over 30 years ago at our founder's kitchen table in Elgin, Illinois! WATCH our story then read what our satisfied parents are saying!

"WOW is all we can say. Our son was always interested in drawing but little did we know that the additional skills he is learning in your classes would improve his grades at school. Thank you for offering such a wonderful program that he truly loves!" - Oswego Mom

"MY daughter LOVES her art class with Ms Crystal at Ridge Elementary.  She is excited to go each week and comes home so proud of her art work. She is doing wonderful and we have seen such a positive attitude about her art. Thank you for this program you offer. And kudos to your teacher for showing kids that art is fun." - Jen (Plainfield)

"OUR daughter has attended your after school classes at Beverly Skoff Elementary for several years and absolutely loves them! We have seen tremendous growth in her creative skills and technical ability not to mention that her self confidence has skyrocketed immensely!" - Rebecca (Plainfield/Romeoville)

"I want to say you have a great program. My daughter just LOVES being part of the classes her in Coal City at the Early Childhood Center. Thank you for it."  - Bob (Coal City)
