Young Rembrandts Elementary Drawing

Young Rembrandts’ acclaimed drawing method teaches children to break down complex objects into basic foundational shapes. As they learn to deconstruct and reconstruct images, the experience, repetition and variety of engaging subject matter bring them to increased levels of mastery in drawing. Students will explore the elements of art such as shading, balance, line, volume, depth and color while completing one new drawing each week. Each session offers all new lessons. Parents will receive a curriculum summary each week, so that they are aware of the skills their children are mastering. All that being said, Young Rembrandts is enjoyable and fun while complementing the school day curriculum.
