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!

Marrissa Raimonde

The Art Teacher

Hi there! I'm Marrissa, the creator of Yellow Spot:Sun and have been homeschooling my three kiddos since 2013. Prior to homeschooling my own kiddos, I earned my Master's Degree in Art Education and taught art in At-Risk public schools for nearly a decade. Yellow Spot:Sun was created in 2017 because I wanted to help other homeschooling families have access to quality art education at an affordable cost from the comfort from their own homes. With over twenty years of art teaching experience, I am continually adding new courses to the site. You can find lessons that are based on history, literature or the seasons. Many of the lessons include videos of me teaching the art technique step-by-step. Some are downloadable "do it yourself" PDF's. It is my hope and prayer that these courses will be a blessing to you and your kiddos 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
