Here’s another shameless plug for kids taking an art class. Yes, it’s because I’m the founder Young Rembrandts, the coolest and only drawing program out there – but mostly because after years of research, I know how much doing art affects a child’s social-emotional well-being, while expanding brain function overall.
creativity for children
At Young Rembrandts we’ve been interviewing kids that have been drawing with us this past year. For some kids, drawing was a way to continue the classes they were used to at school. For others, it was a way to keep their minds off the stress they were feeling around them.
This last month of school can be challenging for everyone. Kids are squirrely. Parents are feeling burned out from all the end of year activities and a full year of homework battles. And, teachers are at their wits end trying to keep everyone engaged just a little bit longer. Not to worry, we have some great ideas for brain breaks and alternative learning activities to keep the kids interested.
Children who learn to draw using the Young Rembrandts method develop spatial reasoning and fine motor skills, order and sequencing abilities, visualization, and self-discipline as well as fundamental art skills. Enroll your child in a class at her school today.
Who doesn’t want to hear they’re awesome?! For the most part, awesome is in the eyes of the beholder and as parents of visual kids we can see the awesome and appreciate all the special quirks and talents that come with being a visual learner. A creative type, whose room is pile after pile of experiments or projects, who drives us absolutely crazy trying to get out the door on time and who can make a 10 minute homework assignment last all afternoon.

I, like many others, thought learning was learning and art was there as a benefit—an enrichment. As an artist myself, I had always enjoyed participating in art class alongside my other studies. But, I now realize I had grossly underestimated the power and value of art as it relates to education.
