Young Rembrandt Art Coach: Aftershool Art Program for balanced development. Art is important for children especially during their early development. Research shows that art activities develop brain capacity in early childhood; in other words, art is good brain food! Art engages children’s senses in open-ended play and develops cognitive, social-emotional and multi-sensory skills. As children progress into elementary school and beyond, art continues to provide opportunities for brain development, mastery, self esteem and creativity. Critical Cognitive Skills Most importantly are the cognitive benefits that Young Rembrandts has on a child's brain. Art education is essential to the development of abstract thinking in children. Art teaches children the value of creativity and diversity of outcome in a way few other disciplines can. Rooted in Montessori education methodologies, Young Rembrandts uses engaging activity to help children develop focus, order, internal discipline and sequencing abilities. The Young Rembrandts Method and unique curriculum are intentionally designed to develop critical cognitive skills. The ability to think abstractly and perform at deeper cognitive levels is essential to a child's future learning in the advanced levels of math and science. With Young Rembrandts, children gain the following skills: • Fine motor skills (handwriting) • Attention to detail and focus • Process, order and completion • Visual discrimination • Time on task • Visual-spatial organization skills • Sequencing • Expanded image vocabulary • Persistence and follow through • Patience, discipline and manners • Increased self esteem and confidence • Whole Brain Learning Modern brain research shows educators and parents what constitutes the best education for developing children. It is already clear that an education which is rich in variety, visual stimuli, cognitive development, positive reinforcement and creative thinking can help children grow brains better able to face the challenges of future learning. The Young Rembrandts Method and curriculum offer this form of brain-based learning that is crucial to the complete education and full development of modern minds (credit – Young Rembrandts) Personal Assistant for Tracy Lee Stum CEO of Inspire Artfulness Inc: Tracy Lee Stum is an internationally recognized American streetpainter who specializes in spectacular, interactive 3d chalk art street paintings.
