Introducing our early learners to polka dots and abstract art

Polka dots originated from an era when the Polka dance swept through Europe in the mid nineteenth century. From then, it caught on to pop culture and proliferated in the years to come. From Disney’s Minnie Mouse to DC Comics’ Polka Dot Man, these patterns were trendy and catching on! In today’s culture and style, Polka Dots remain at its peak popularity. They are seen on vintage items, dresses and swimsuits to marketing collaterals especially in the seasons of spring and summer.

Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, an influential figure in the world art scene, has continued to appeal to the imagination and the senses through her contemporary work. This involves a world where we are continuously confronted by shapes--dots to be exact! The princess of polka dots is well known for her paintings, sculptures and installations which all incorporate different styles of dots. Her signature look is a bobbed red wig with a red dress covered in polka dots--and her dotty vision didn’t stop there.

At C&O, our young and budding artists had the opportunity to recreate her series of pumpkin art (kusama used to draw tons of these as a child) by adding their own glamorous polka dots to it! The pumpkin, one of her beloved motifs, together with the dots represented a sense of freedom found in repetitive mark-making. A great way for your child to immerse themselves in the abstract and vibrant art, and emulate that experience by dotting their pumpkins!

Our student's version of the pumpkin polka-dot art

There’s always a reminiscence about polka dots that tie us back to carefree childhood days. Kusama’s art and the immersive nature of her pieces make them highly photographable--and we couldn’t agree more! The vibrant pumpkins created by our kids showcased dots of all sizes and colours of all shades!

Kusama went on to explore dots in more diverse manners, and she created approximately 50,000 works of art during her career. She went on to create more abstract art infusing circular repetitive patterns. We pulled out some material to let our kids’ imaginations run free as they create another Kusama-inspired art--this time with rubber bands to emulate the dots, the 3D effect and the contrast between two circular patterns. 

Dots continue to stay trending and there are many ways to explore art with polka dots! Try dotting your balloons, or even your cupcakes. Better still, if you’ve got your child’s room to fix up, go for a polka dotted feature wall. Your child is going to love the idea of introducing dots to his or her daily lifestyle.
