Art has an impact on every aspect of our children’s lives. When children are confident in their creativity they can then feel confident to share ideas and try new things. Look at the positive impact Young Rembrandts classes have had on this former student as he has grown in the arts.
I just blessed some kids in Alabama, Texas, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Arizona and it feels GREAT! I don’t know them or their teachers, but I do know their schools can’t give them what they need. Determined to give their students art, their teachers posted their projects on Donors Choose, a website anyone can view and donate on.
Why do we expect art technique to be intuitive? Can you imagine going to statistics class and having the professor say – explore? Look at these numbers. Read these new problems and give it a go. Try and figure out how to make numbers do that. No explanation. Not even a text book.
Episode 3 of Living life as a Visual Thinker is inspired by my personal mission to change the lives of visual thinkers. I want to share with you why I do what I do and I want to invite you to join my mission to impact education for visual learners.
“There are visible academic and art benefits for children that participate in our program. Young Rembrandts’ students have fun while developing fundamental art literacy and improved academic abilities,” notes Fetter. “We are passionate about helping children develop the skills they need to be successful.”
