Students love playing this dice game to create a Yayoi Kusama “My Eternal Soul” inspired acrylic painting. By rolling the die, they collect the different parts required: borders, eyes, worms, faces – all elements taken from Ms Kusama’s vast collection of “My Eternal Soul” series.

I designed this lesson to be completed with simple supplies: paper, pencils, black sharpies, photocopies of roll-a-dice master, dice, small paint brushes, and acrylic paint.
Approximate Time Needed
The time needed will depend on the age group of students but usually takes approximately 60 – 90 minutes for the read-aloud introduction, art lesson and clean up.
Read Aloud Introduction
You do NOT need any art and / or art history knowledge to teach À la cART lessons – it is all laid out for you. The read-aloud introduction introduces the artist and explains art movement and techniques pertinent to the lesson; with questions guiding student conversation.
I like using visuals to support my lessons. Due to copyright infringement, the art pieces are not included but I have listed the artist and title of the artwork. You can do a Google image search and then share with the class by projecting on a smartboard or whiteboard.
