Young Rembrandts Drawing Program Now Offered at Harnew and Columbus Manor Enhancing Children's Art Education in Oak Lawn
Realizing a “picture perfect” opportunity to make a difference in the community, local entrepreneur Diane Adamonis is enriching children’s lives through art education in Oak Lawn – one color and shape at a time as she introduces Young Rembrandts Art Enrichment program to Harnew and Columbus Manor Elementary Schools.
“With Young Rembrandts, children learn not only how to draw but also to better observe and experience an increasingly visual world, build confidence and self-esteem, solve problems and set and achieve goals,” Adamonis said. “It also helps children develop fine motor skills and attention to detail. Studies show a direct correlation between art and increased academic performance. Our multisensory approach to learning meets every child at their unique ability level.”
Young Rembrandts is an acclaimed, step-by-step drawing method that uses one of a kind, innovative art curriculum developed internally by a team of educators and artists. The program focuses on teaching children to draw, using demonstration and a structured step-by-step process. This method of directed drawing gives young students instruction on how to draw increasingly complex images at a crucial time in their development. Through weekly instruction students are exposed to a wide variety of subject matter, artistic concepts, art history and mastery of materials.
The development of foundational art skills for pre-school and elementary students is critical. There is a common misunderstanding that creativity happens without instruction -- that artistic creativity comes naturally from a child or adult. Young Rembrandts believes true creativity comes when the mastery of core skills is combined with original thought helping children develop the skill, tools and confidence to continue participating in the arts.
Based in Chicago, Young Rembrandts is part of an international franchise whose proven curriculum focuses on enhancing overall academic success through the teaching of art skills. Young Rembrandts is an acclaimed, step-by-step drawing method that uses one of a kind, innovative art curriculum developed internally by a team of educators and artists.
