Overview


The majority of our school population depends on their visual skills to learn.  These visual-spatial, right-brained thinkers are not just the art kids, but our future scientists, engineers and mathematicians.  Our visual students, however, are struggling in a test-heavy education system that favors left-brain linear thinkers.

For over 20 years, Young Rembrandts has helped tens of thousands of visual-spatial students reach their potential in the arts as well as the classroom.  In Being Visual, Bette Fetter, the founder of Young Rembrandts, discusses strategies to increase your visual learner’s success in school, identifying:

• Three key learning styles
• Visual study techniques
• Effective writing strategies
• Visual needs of students with autism, ADD and dyslexia
Fetter also presents a fresh case for art class as a critical must-have for students dependent on their visual skills to learn.  Training in the technical skills of art provides tools for creative endeavors, while developing essential visual skills and learning activities in all children.

Editorial Reviews

Lee Woodruff

“In Being Visual, [Fetter] shares her life-long passion for teaching and the arts—and shows how they come together to create tomorrow’s innovators.”— Lee Woodruff, New York Times bestselling co-author of In an Instant and “CBS This Morning” contributor 
Jeffrey Freed

“The future will undoubtedly bring more visual learners; the disconnect between the education system and these learners will become a vast chasm if we continue on our present course.
Being Visual is a strong step in the right direction, and should be required reading for anyone involved in education, parenting or the arts in today’s visual generation.”— Jeffrey Freed, co-author of Right-Brain Children in a Left-Brained World: Unlocking the Potential of Your ADD Child 
Linda K. Silverman

“[Being Visual] weaves theory, personal experience and helpful suggestions into a unique tapestry.
This is a powerful call to reinstate the arts in education.”— Linda K. Silverman, Ph.D., Director, Gifted Development Center, author of Upside-Down Brilliance: The Visual-Spatial Learner

Meet the Author


Bette Fetter, Founder and CEO of Young Rembrandts, Inc., began her career as a professional artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Northern Illinois University.  Through her education, participation in various forms of the arts, and experience with Montessori education, Bette gained first-hand understanding of the value of the arts in developing young minds.

Her passion for the arts and early childhood education led Bette to develop Young Rembrandts, a unique teaching methodology focused on developing foundational are and drawing skills in young children.  Bette franchised her business, and what began 24 years ago with eight kids at her kitchen table now reaches tens of thousands of children nationally and internationally.

While writing Being Visual, Bette received her MBA from Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois. Bette is the President of Brilliant Arts, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide and support arts programs for children that aid in the development of neural and cognitive learning skills.
Overall, Fetter’s mission is to reach children and adults alike in order to “raise generations that value the power, the passion and the significance of art.”
