CEO Bette Fetter Talks 'What's Next?'
It's been 31 years since Bette Fetter turned the children's art classes she taught at her kitchen table into an international franchise, and the Elgin woman continues to be a caldron of business ideas. Fetter, 65, is the founder and CEO of Young Rembrandts, which teaches drawing to children ages 3½ to 12 in schools, park districts and libraries. The company is based in Elgin and has about 100 franchises in the United States, Canada, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
Since 1988, Young Rembrandts has taught the power of drawing to children. The proprietary method and step-by-step curriculum dispels the myth that art is a talent a child has or doesn’t have, and demonstrates that art can be learned by all children. Children taught using this method develop increased patience, discipline and focus as well as a host of artistic skills such as art history, drawing and art skills, and expanded creativity, imagination and confidence.
