I live in a bubble. A lovely bubble. And every once in awhile I am reminded just how lovely it is. My most recent reminder came last week at the Young Rembrandts Annual Conference, where I spent three days with the most joyful, determined, passionate group of individuals.
If you haven’t already seen the new collection of How to Draw Videos, it’s time dive in. “How to Draw Cartoon Zoo Animals” is a set of 7 different drawing activities for kids to do at home, school and almost anywhere else.

A few weeks ago my sister Diane called to talk about her granddaughter Lanie. It seems her first grade teacher had some concerns about her reading and wanted to meet with Lanie’s mom and dad. They talked as a family about what the stumbling block might be and remembered our conversations about visual learners. Lanie is a visual learner and she loves to draw. She loves to draw anywhere, anytime, all the time. She takes weekly Young Rembrandts classes at her elementary school. Lanie is a visual learner – but not because she loves art. She’s a visual learner because that is how her brain is wired.

I’ve recently been featured in the latest issue of Franchising USA Magazine. Check out my article here, “Mastering the Art of Franchising” or by visiting the Young Rembrandts Franchise site . Here’s a sneak peak…
“The Young Rembrandts difference is that it’s not just a business or product, it’s a mission,” explains Fetter. “Our franchisees are passionate and mission orientated and the quality of the product doesn’t compare to just any art class. It’s been designed very intentionally to maximize the amount of impact we believe art can have on children academically and holistically.”
