Come join us in honoring the men and women who gave their lives to preserve our freedom this Memorial Day as Bette Fetter, founder and CEO of Young Rembrandts and author of Being Visual, invites you to a fun Memorial Day activity by demonstrating how to draw a cartoon soldier.
drawing for kids
For children, drawing is a way of seeing things, thinking about their world or sharing how they feel. For visual thinkers, drawing is like handwriting is for auditory learners. It is extremely important for them to feel comfortable with a way to express themselves.
Young Rembrandts is celebrating the future of art education with “We Love Our Hometown Heroes,” a commitment to the true heroes in markets across the country: service members who spend lives to keeping our communities safe so kids can learn transformative art education.
Getting good grades is important for kids, parents and educators. Young Rembrandts programs increase a child’s academic performance by supplementing & improving on many of their core learning skills. Visual literacy is a major component of this – the ability to interpret, negotiate and make meaning from information presented visually or from a picture.
The school year is coming to an end and what a crazy ride it has been. Go ahead, take a little time to relax and rejuvenate. You’ve earned it.
But don’t take too long of a break. If summer days are consistently lazy – a significant amount of what went into building your child’s brain during the school year will start to leak out. I have just the thing to prevent this loss.
Spring is in the air and with it comes new life and movement from the creepy crawlies. Have fun drawing this simple step by step snail. And let the creativity flow while you color your masterpiece. If you like this video consider enrolling your child in a Young Rembrandts class at a school or rec center near you.
