Had a chance to check out the Young Rembrandts program. It's offered after school at most Elementary schools in EPISD.
I had no idea we offered it here in El Paso, but it makes sense because this is probably one of the most artistic cities I've been in, the other comparable being Barcelona. The talent is so apparent here with the murals and aesthetics of the buildings, even on the food trucks etc. I guess they nurture them young!
I really liked the program and the teacher. She's super patient and in the 45 mins she was able to get the entire class of 25 kids of various ages between 5-9 to draw from scratch a treehouse with angles and proportions and colors and shading.
I was very impressed with how she was able to interact with the kids and give them one on one time and give them little tips. I could see the confidence building in my kids and it teaches them so much hand control and coordination.
If they offer it at your school, jump on it. It's a great program and space is limited so there's always a wait-list. We're gonna try to get in after the school break. It's also very affordable with scholarships and sibling discounts and payments plans. They offer the classes after school on different days so you're able to pick them a little later and avoid the lines.
See if they're in your school and trial a class. #supportlocal
