Last year I introduced our Kindergarten students to the work of the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.

The students loved her colorful work with polka dots, and this year I decided we should have more fun creating pumpkins based on her style. Both grades (KG, and G1) viewed Yayoi Kusama's work, concentrating on her colorful pumpkins.
Some Kindergarten students used finger painting to create the dots, while others choose to use brushes. It was interesting to watch the students trying to hold the brush completely vertical in an effort to create the "perfect" dot.
The first graders decided to use pencils and colorful sharpies for the drawing part or the project and water colors for the background.
