What happy teachers are saying:


This is one of my favorite lessons by Expressive Monkey ( I love many)!

It is supremely well thought out and executed. The artist, Yayoi Kusama, is well covered. You will fall in love with her art and her style. The art lessons are excellent and meticulously explained. My students adored this lesson. I cannot wait to teach it again next year. Thank you for this superb resource!

My class loved this!  It allowed for my non-artists to feel successful.  Roll art is a great way to differentiate with reluctant artists.  This is one of many I’ve purchased, and continue to look for new artists to teach.  Thank you!

I am extremely satisfied with my purchase! I printed the pumpkin & infinity net printables on colored paper. The kids added black dots to their pumpkins, cut them out & pasted them on the infinity net backgrounds. It ended up being such a cute craft for Famous Artists week! I will definitely consider checking this shop out again for next year.
