ELEMENTARY DRAWING by: Young Rembrandts           6-12yrs

Back to school is in full swing as we present a bountiful selection of drawings that introduces our students to a fascinating world of color, pattern, and design. We say farewell to summer in our detailed still life drawing of a beach. We explore color usage and composition in our chameleon and fire truck drawings. In keeping with the season, our stylized “fall leaves” drawing challenges our technique and color scheme. Our students will learn cultural themes as they draw and color Kawaii- inspired art. All this and more awaits your child in a Young Rembrandts classroom! Sign up today!    N/C: 10/9
