Kusama Collages

While Kusama is known for her installations, she also creates amazing paintings using organic shapes and intricate designs. 5th grade viewed many of these as the inspiration for these collages.

Original paintings by Kusama
We used this as a chance to review complementary colors. Students chose 2 papers and cut organic shapes from one to collage onto the other.

Then we used Sharpie markers to add designs like we found in Kusama's paintings. Gorgeous results!

Check out these awesome artworks!
