A picture is worth a thousand words, which is why the best-paid novelists write in rebuses. Help young ones express themselves succinctly with today's Groupon: for $37, you get a children's art workshop to Young Rembrandts (a $75 value) at Legacy Christian Academy. Choose from the following four-day sessions:
• By the Sea, July 11–July 14 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.
• Silly Monsters, July 18–July 21 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.
•Dinosaurs, July 25–July 28 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.
Following a time-tested step-by-step method, Young Rembrandts' instructors lead budding gallery fillers through a four-day process of artistic discovery by focusing on subject matter that resonates with kids. In each workshop, a roomful of 6- to 12-year-olds expresses themselves in a series of four lessons that move toward a concrete visual goal. Miniature sketchers participating in By the Sea draw their inspiration from the New England shoreline, apprehending the basics of colored pencil and marker control. While the Dinosaurs sessions use ink to anthropomorphize extinct earth walkers, the Silly Monsters classes challenge youngins to stretch their imaginations to create vivid portrayals of the monster under the bed, the closet monster, or the monster headache their parents always complain about.
Young Rembrandts' artistic curricula can help students develop core art skills, attention to detail, organizational skills, and strategies for problem solving. All colored pencils and markers necessary for creation are provided. Parisian berets optional.
