Yellow Spot:Sun Fights to Save Art Instruction for Distance Learners

Share Article

Core subjects prove difficult for parents to teach, art is often sacrificed altogether.

"Our mission is to help parents continue to provide a well-rounded educational experience to their children especially during these challenging times."

Yellow Spot:Sun is helping parents who have chosen distance learning for their children for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. Yellow Spot:Sun is an online art learning program designed to teach school aged children about color theory, art techniques, art appreciation and art history all from the comfort of their home. It is a complete art curriculum that includes video instruction and downloadable PDF workbooks that makes it perfect for home-based learning.

Yellow Spot:Sun’s founder, Marrissa Raimonde, who has a Master’s Degree in Art Education, elaborates on keeping art included in your child(ren)’s school plans, “We all know that the arts were slowly being eroded from our children’s schools and pandemic scrambling is expediting the removal of arts from many counties’ plans. Our mission is to help parents continue to provide a well-rounded educational experience to their children especially during these challenging times.”

The curricula were designed with two factors in mind, cost and minimal parental participation. The courses were created for very little, if any, parent participation allowing parents a breather during a full day of their newest profession, teaching. “As a homeschooling mom myself, I felt the need to create something that allowed parents to take a mental break, yet keep the kids learning and entertained,” says Raimonde. In addition, there are free lessons, weekly lessons and full semester long courses, none of which are more than $38.95 making these extremely affordable for all families that find themselves navigating a new normal in education.

There are multiple history-based courses available covering American History, Ancient History, Impressionism, Medieval Times, Transportation History and more. All lessons and courses can be found on the website at https://www.yellowspotsun.com/.
