Shades of November (Young Rembrandts)

Lily's American Gothic

AMERICAN GOTHIC: One of my all-time favourite drawings that my daughter, Lily created during her classes with the Young Rembrandts.

Well, Halloween is behind us and a new month lies ahead…happy November! Does anyone have a candy hangover today??

I don’t know about you, but autumn has *totally* been flying by at our house. I’m looking at November as a time to re-group and get ready for winter and, of course, Christmas (sorry…too soon??)!

At this time of year, many parents are also looking for engaging activities to take their kids through the winter. If your kids are anything like mine and enjoy creative pursuits, you might want to check out the Young Rembrandts in Ottawa. My girls have enjoyed countless drawing classes there, and the instructors have truly helped further their artistic abilities!

In each week’s new (and kid-tested!) lesson, the Young Rembrandts use a step-by-step method that assures every student is a creative success.  As they learn and use technical drawing skills, children engage their problem-solving skills, innovation and imagination to create their very own masterpieces. Instructors at the drawing school are also skilled at working with kids on the autism spectrum, which I wrote about in a past issue of Parenting Times magazine.

Check out the latest Young Rembrandt class offerings in Barrhaven, Kanata, Stittsville and Orleans. Your kids will be colouring November with all shades of happy as they discover art for themselves!

    Nice to see a new post, Sonia! And a lovely autumn it has been – hopefully a harbinger of a warm winter to come. I’m beginning to think that with winter soccer and guitar, our little girl may be over-scheduled a smidge. Hope your girls are all settled back in at school.

    • Thanks for reading, Geoff – and great to hear from you! Yes, it sure has been a great fall. The kids are settled right in – ours have piano and swimming at the moment. I’m trying hard not to overschedule this year, too! Has your Christmas prep started yet??

What do you think?
