kids-pants 3Bernadette reports that we’re low on both boys and girls pants and underwear in the office (for when kids have accidents or get wet and need a change of pants).

Please return any items your own children may have borrowed from school and donate any extras they’ve grown out of. No shirts, please.

Young Rembrants Drawing Class

young-rembrandts-logoThe fall season is one of the most colorful times of the year. In a Young Rembrandts drawing class, we’ll capture all of those colors and more in our fabulous drawings.

Our rainbow giraffe seemingly captures the entire spectrum of colors in a very stylized drawing. A fun drawing of cartoon worms and apples will teach our students how to properly color with colored pencils. We’ll also take an imaginary journey to Paris as we draw the famous Eiffel Tower.

A creepy drawing of a haunted house captures the fun spirit of the season. All this and more await your artist in a Young Rembrandts classroom.
