Come Draw With Us!

The Power of Drawing

Drawing is the fundamental skill of the visual arts that can - and should - be learned by all children.

Young Rembrandts teaches the drawing skills children need while developing learning skills that give children an academic advantage in the classroom.


If your kids are new to drawing, take your time exploring our entire website. If your kids are seasoned pros, it's time to introduce them to all NEW lessons! VIEW CLASSES NOW OPEN

Parents, PTO's/PTA's, educators and park districts interested in offering our classes to the students in their community, contact us by phone or email. I will help you bring Young Rembrandts to your school or organization at NO COST to you since we are parent funded. OUR CLASSES can be started at any time during the school year! You will find our processes for establishing classes and enrolling students is very easy. I am very confident you will agree the most compelling element of our program is the quality and effectiveness of our curriculum. WE ARE MORE THAN DRAWING. We can help your students achieve better grades and higher test scores.

ONCE you give your child the gift to discover the power of drawing, CELEBRATE their accomplishments!

Every week, ASK your child to demonstrate how they drew their weekly lesson by bringing your entire family together at your kitchen table because that is how Young Rembrandts award-winning weekly drawing classes began 30 years ago ... at our founder's kitchen table.

Thank you for helping me keep ART in the heart of every child through the power of drawing!

Artfully yours,


Your Community Program Director
