1. How long do I have to use this course?

Once you purchase this course, it is yours to use as often as you would like. You can start and stop a session at anytime. There is no specific time frame needed to finish this class. It does not expire.

2. What age group is this course geared towards?

This course is geared towards children in elementary or middles school. The younger students might need some guidance/help from the parent to have the videos set up (logging in to the website and getting the supplies out). You know your child! For the most part, students should be able to grab their supplies, watch the video demonstrations and complete the art work independently. {Make sure you bookmark this site so your child will be able to sign in!} High schoolers could also use this course to improve art skills or practice these lessons from a different point of view. Parents might also want to participate in these lessons as a fun way to create art together as a family!

There are 5 step-by-step videos demonstrating how to do each art project (color theory video, elements of art video, art critique video, sketchbook weekly wrap-up video, and painting project video).

4. Why the name "Yellow Spot: Sun"?

Pablo Picasso, famous artist and Cubist, once said, "There are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others, with the help of their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun." 

What a wonderful way to view art! If we take the time to view art in this manner, there is no telling what each of these budding artists can create over their lifetime!

The Art Teacher

Hi there!

Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved creating art. But, oddly enough, I thought I was going to be an architect when I grew up, so when I headed off to college that is what I began studying! During my sophomore year of college, one of the art classes I was enrolled in assigned us to work in an at-risk elementary school assisting the art teacher. I was saddened to find out what an at -risk elementary school was but amazed by the enthusiasm and joy the art class brought to the students. It was so much fun working with the kids! This "assignment" ended up changing everything. At the end of the year I changed my major and eventually graduated with a B.S. in Art Education.

After teaching in the public school system for a couple of years, I decided to get my M.Ed (Master's degree) in Art Education and began taking classes part time while teaching full time. I taught in the public school system in at-risk schools for seven years, up until my first daughter was born. Now, three kiddos and nearly ten years later, I am homeschooling!

Since homeschooling, I have been able to teach several art classes to other homeschooling families and have realized that there is a great need for a quality art education program for homeschoolers. Thus, the idea to offer step-by-step instructions online at an affordable cost to families was born.

It is my hope and prayer that these courses will be a blessing to you and your children and that the desire to create will be ignited in each of them that fosters a love of the arts for a lifetime!

Sincerely,

Marrissa

Enjoyable Class!

It's amazing! Soooo much fun! I have NEVER been a very good artist ,but this makes me feel so happy with myself! I'm not as frustrated with my mistakes as I used to be. Once I actually regretted starting over ,because once I had I got a great idea that I could have done instead! Oh well!
