Notes on Yayoi Kusama
Kala means art and craft, dance and music, drama and writing, drawing and painting. Karm means action. Kalakarm Curriculum hence translates to an art educational resource that facilitates ‘learning by doing’.
The resource is developed in collaboration with educators in India who acknowledged the lack of art training as an obstacle to integrating art in their lesson plans. Kalakarm therefore starts at ground zero where it realises that the educator is a learner as well. It is a resource for every educator because if any educator could be an arts educator, then every learner could be an artist. Each sheet of the resource is an A4 worksheet which can be cheaply photocopied and easily distributed. They can be customised by the educator and used to deliver numerous lessons.
