Program Description

Event Details

Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is sometimes called the “princess of polka dots.” She creates paintings, sculptures, performances and installations and the one thing they have in common is dots! Learn more about Yayoi, her life, her work and her contributions to the art movements of Pop Art and Minimalism. Then Miss Jane will show you step-by-step how to create your own polka-dotted masterpiece.

This program is free and open to all children in grades K-2 with an adult. No library card is required. Sign up is required. Sign up online here, by telephone at 224-543-1486, or in person at any public service desk in the library.
