Yayoi Kusama Art Lesson: Drawing Star Faces

Please enter a quantity.


Yayoi Kusama's balloon, "Love Flies Up to the Sky" will be featured (for the first time) in the 2019 Macy's Thanksgiving parade.  This lesson is based on the face images in her painting series "My Eternal Soul", which inspired the design for the Thanksgiving Day balloon.
