Going Dotty

Our inspiration comes from Yayoi Kusama, a Japanese artist who uses lots of dots in her work and bright, vibrant colours. Students can choose from fish, sea creatures or flowers as their subject matter. We’ll build a composition for a painting using dots and then add the texture of paper to the surface, before painting in bright colours. The results will be outstanding!
