KOKESHI DOLL: JAPANESE ART

Share This Page

Kokeshi dolls are characterized by their lack of arms and legs, as well as their brightly painted kimono in floral designs and geometric patterns.  We prepared the background, and the paper the flowers were cut from, before coloring and cutting out the doll.  The background paper was painted by using two inch squares of colored tissue paper (tissue painting).  The paper for the flowers was painted with torn tissue paper.  The directions for this project, “Japanese Kokeshi Doll,” is in the 4th Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.  This project takes two —l hour—-sessions to complete.
