A mini topic which can be done over a couple of mornings / afternoons or throughout a single day.
Together with a powerpoint and planning sheet, this topic takes you through some of the works of Yayoi Kusama, known for her bright, bold colour and design choices, all of which featured polka dots.
Whilst the artwork itself can be created by children in any age group, the themes within the works, and also within her life, make this more suitable for older children. When I used this with my class, we got into a really interesting discussion around the role of nudity in art, and how mental illness can impact on people’s life choices.
It's good to leave some feedback.

A simple clear project which could be easily expanded into a longer project. Could progress with various media including paint, textiles, ceramics, digital media etc. The concepts could also be developed from looking at colour and pattern to mental health and social expectations. Great, thank you!
Hi, thanks for your suggestions :-) This was designed as a mini topic / introduction to Kusama for the end of term, but if you were looking for something which would last longer then those are great ideas, especially given the societal expectations that Kusama was brought up with.
