Description

This Jasper Johns Watercolour and Coloured Pencil project teaches not only about the artist but also colour theory as it uses anaolgous/harmonious and complementary colours.  A stage by stage description, good examples and tips throughout help you and your students get great results.

Resources included:

  • Stage by Stage unit of work which breaks the project down into steps and provides tips, homework ideas and keywords.
  • 3 ‘Good Examples’ which show each stage. (Pictured above)
  • Lesson Objectives and the same good examples in a 2-slide PowerPoint.
  • Numbers 0-9 in an authentic Jasper Johns style to trace which are the perfect size to overlap.
  • A page with a rectangle on which is the exact size to trace the numbers into.
  • A fact sheet making you an instant Jasper Johns expert.
  • A list of questions to ask your students about Johns work.
  • A 12 segment colour wheel to help with identifying harmonious and complementary colours. (Two versions – one with the spelling ‘Colour’ and one ‘Color’).

This resource does not include lessons plans but a detailed stage by stage breakdown.

    Thank you for the resource. It will be useful but I would have loved an instruction ppt with starter slides etc (like your fabulous eye drawing unit of work) with it (but it was made clear in the info that it did not come with one.)

  • Excellent lesson!

    I used this with grades 5,6,&7
    The results were fantastic! Even if some didn’t choose analogous colors, they still looked amazing. We started with watercolor, colored pencils, and switch to Huhu markers ( alcohol based) which featured so many analogous colors.
    Really beautiful lesson, a win for even my most artistically challenged students.
    I wish I could add a photo!

    This was very helpful and a good lesson. I like all the lessons I have downloaded from this site.
    I would love to have more distance learning lessons since my classes won’t be returning to the school until next year.

      • I loved this unit. My Y6 class produced some excellent work with water colour and coloured pencil. Would you please consider doing something similar with letters? I’d like to stay on the topic for a bit longer but extend to acrylic, and Jasper Johns alphabet work would lend itself to this? Thanks!

  • Awesome Lessons...a couple questions

    Hi! I love this lesson. I’m just about to do it with my students next week. I had a question. Should the students paint with warm colors only? I’m wondering if they do cool what it would look like when they shade with warm colors. I don’t think it will look near as good as it does with warm paint and cool Prisma. I have only done it myself with warm harmonious paint colors and won’t have time to do a sample in cool harmonious colors so I just thought I’d check? If you have a sample or a student project who used the cool colors to paint, could you send me a pic? Thanks so much!

    • Hi, I don’t have a sample to send you but I have done it both ways with students. I think it’s good to give them the choice of either warm or cool harmonious paint and then shading with the opposite on top. Both will look good because of the contrast. I think if you do a display of the work when it’s finished that it looks good with a variety. I hope that helps.

      • Thanks so much for getting back to me. You are right. The cool colors look great too with the warm Prisma on them. I too agree it will look nice to have a wide variety to display. I was able to make a small cool paint sample and was able to add warm shading on some of it and it looks great. Can’t wait for my students to start these. They are going to look amazing. Thanks so much for the awesome lesson!

    Sarah Crowther – The Arty Teacher

    I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.

    I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.

    I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
