Tess Gutkowski, of Mokena, was introduced to Young Rembrandts when her daughter Allie — who is now in eighth grade — was in kindergarten.

“I signed her up and after the first two classes — I knew my daughter could draw well for a kindergartner, but she came home with a scarecrow and I actually went to the teacher and asked her, ‘This is great. Allie colored the picture you drew for her beautifully, when are you going to teach her to draw?’ And the teacher at the time said, ‘Your daughter drew this,’” Gutkowski said.
