Meet the Pumpkin Princess

Fifth grade artists created these pumpkins in the style of Japanese pop artist Yayoi Kusama.  Known as the Pumpkin Princess, her large pumpkin sculptures and art pieces are filled with polka dots.  Her pumpkins are often placed on a neon colored background with a pattern that she calls a “net”.

Georgetown 5th grade artists created their Kusama-inspired pieces by printing a net background with cardboard pieces and carefully filling their pumpkins with a variety of dots.  Their project is a fun twist on the usual Fall pumpkin artwork!
