Field Trip to Yayoi Kusama: My Eternal Soul

Over the next few days, the fourth graders will finish the summative task for the How We Express Ourselves unit, which is called Expression through the Arts. They will use their knowledge of the elements of art (line, shape, color, space, value, form, texture) and the principles of design (balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, pattern, rhythm and unity) to create artwork that reflects a social issue.

Today, the students used this knowledge to interpret artwork by Yayoi Kusama. Your daughter should be able to share some of her observations with you using specific vocabulary, such as geometric shapes/form and organic shapes/form, actual texture and implied texture, positive space and negative space, and tint/shades/shading (value).
