Polka Dot Pumpkin Party with Yayoi Kusama


Introduce your kids to the legendary modern artist Yayoi Kusama, and use her whimsical polka dot pumpkin art as inspiration for a few simple activities you can do at home.

This workshop course includes:

  • a series of 8 short kid-friendly pre-recorded video lessons (watch them when it’s convenient for you, and go at your own pace!)

  • a 29 page PDF workshop activity guide

  • a pop-up Facebook group where we can get together and chat about Yayoi all month (Oct 1-31)

  • a live art show hosted on Zoom- kids are invited to come on video during a fun virtual get together on November 1.

During this workshop your kids will:

  1. Learn all about Yayoi Kusama – we’ll discover the story of her life and learn the reason behind her fascination with dots!

  2. Explore her artwork– we’ll look at her art together and your kids can make notes about their observations.

  3. Learn about the elements and principles of art Yayoi uses in her artwork, and connect her art to other subjects!

  4. Create their own Yayoi Kusama inspired pumpkin art!

Don’t worry if…

  • you don't know anything about art yourself. (All of the learning is done via kid-friendly videos… you can learn right alongside your kids!)

  • you don't have a lot of art supplies. (There will be multiple project suggestions, and the simplest one can be done with construction paper and crayons!)

  • you have a busy schedule in October. (Once the class is released on October 11, you can go through it at your own pace. Plus, you get lifetime access… come back again next year and make it a family tradition!)


When you join the course, you’ll get a pdf with a link to the virtual classroom and all of the details you need to access the workshop.

You’ll also get access to the Facebook group where we’ll be chatting as a group throughout the month of October.

The course was created for kids aged 5-12, but older kids would enjoy it, too!

One course purchase covers all of the kids in your household.

You get lifetime access to the course.
