Young Rembrandts Drawing Classes and Workshops for kids 6-12 years
Students learn and develop drawing skills and art appreciation through our progressive, open-ended approach to drawing. We use stepwise instruction to inspire students’ independent drawings, including seasonal, realistic and abstract images. Our curriculum is varied and challenging, with new, engaging drawing lessons every week, and every session. Our goal is to provide children with the skills and confidence to create fun and rewarding artwork in and out of our class.
