Yayoi Kusama is famous for many things—polka dots and pumpkins are the two things for which she is most famous. This unique project will combine both of those things with your students’ creativity to create an “infinity” pumpkin bulletin board display—one like no other! Your student will color small, medium, and large Kusama-inspired polka dot pumpkins for this project. My students loved it, and I know yours will too!
The large pumpkin poster includes a quote from a letter that Vincent van Gogh wrote to his brother, Theo, in 1882. This quote by Vincent van Gogh embraces the sentiment of this collaborative class project.
“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.” ~Vincent van Gogh

Pumpkin Design #1: No Black Dots.
The first option allows your students to color the dots and leave the background white. Or they can color the dots and the background.
For this option, I recommend crayons, colored pencils, or markers.
Pumpkin sizes include in Design #1:
Pumpkin Design #2: With Black Dots.
The second design allows your students to color only the background of the pumpkin. All the dots are already colored black!
You can do this option with crayons, colored pencils, or markers. However, if you have the supplies, I highly recommend letting students use watercolor paint with this design (in all three sizes)—more information in the instructions.
