Sign up for after school enrichment classes and summer camps for your budding artist!

Art is not just about creating pretty pictures; it plays a crucial role in child development. Drawing and art lessons offer a myriad of benefits for children, ranging from enhancing their creativity to improving their fine motor skills. The Young Rembrandts team is dedicated to ensuring your child receives the best art education possible. Young Rembrandts programs are built to be fun, but children who participate in local Young Rembrandts drawing classes and camps increase academic skills, fine motor skills, social skills, hand and eye coordination and confidence. Young Rembrandts develops the whole brain and their students are exposed to a wide variety of subject matter, artistic concepts, art history and mastery of their materials. Students learn about famous artists and their work, as well as famous architectural landmarks. The curriculum is carefully developed by a team of art educators and artists in a way that lessons are never repeated.


Here are some key advantages of incorporating art into a child’s life:


Creativity and Self-Expression

Art provides children with a medium to express their thoughts, feelings, and imagination freely. Through drawing and painting, children can explore their creativity and develop a sense of identity.

Fine Motor Skills

Engaging in art activities, such as coloring and drawing, helps children develop their fine motor skills. These activities require precise movements and coordination, which are essential for tasks like writing and buttoning clothes.


Cognitive Development

Art lessons can enhance cognitive skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and decision-making. When children plan and execute an art project, they learn to make choices and solve problems creatively.


Emotional Development

Art provides a safe space for children to explore and express their emotions. It can help them cope with difficult feelings and develop emotional resilience.


Social Skills

Art classes encourage collaboration and communication among children. Working on art projects together teaches them how to share ideas, take turns, and respect each other’s work.


Confidence and Self-Esteem

Completing an art project gives children a sense of accomplishment and boosts their self-esteem. Positive feedback from teachers and peers further reinforces their confidence.


Cultural Awareness and Appreciation

Through art, children can learn about different cultures, traditions, and historical periods. This exposure fosters cultural awareness and appreciation.


Attention and Focus

Art requires concentration and attention to detail, which can help improve children’s focus and attention span.


Incorporating drawing and art lessons into a child’s routine can have a profound impact on their overall development. Whether at home or in a formal art class, providing opportunities for creative expression can nurture a child’s imagination, cognitive abilities, and emotional well-being.
