Art Lesson Plans for Jasper Johns
Jasper Johns Watercolour

This Jasper Johns Watercolor and Coloured Pencil Unit 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)
  • 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.
