Going to school and being asked to think in steps and a specific order can be a challenge for a child that is so used to seeing pictures and “movies” in their head and just understanding things intuitively. That’s why it is so important for us to give them times and places throughout the day to be creative and think in the way that they are most comfortable. It’s so important for right brain thinkers that we advocate to keep art curriculum in the school day or at the very least have an extracurricular option for the arts. Young Rembrandts is one of the many options for keeping creative pursuits in our schools. If your child’s school doesn’t have an art program, talk to the principal and find out who is in charge of afterschool options. Go to the Young Rembrandts find a class page, figure out who is in charge of classes in your area and contact them. Change starts with one person so get out there and help the schools understand why art programs are essential.
