Matisse Art Journal Page

Did you know that Matisse and Picasso were good friends before they became rivals? That must have made for interesting times. All I know is that Matisse was a master of colors and patterns, and that look can be explored easily with marker, crayons and watercolors. The print friendly pdf file for this lesson may be downloaded HERE. To see the entire series of Art Journal lessons compiled to date, click on the label “2014 Art Journal Project

For your students, there's a book called When Pigasso Met Mootisse by Nina Laden, which talks about their relationship. The book has a happy ending, but there is also a accurate account of their relationship in the back on the book.

TY for the generous sharing of your Art Journal project. I have been downloading the pdf's today and they are all fine, but with the Matisse one, I keep getting an error message that says it is damaged and can't be repaired.

I also appreciate Emily's comment about the book.

These journal pages are terrific. I can't wait to figure out just how I will incorporate this into my classroom next fall. I especially appreciate the time and effort you put in creating such visually appealing presentations for the pages.

Hi Kathy,
My children are LOVING building their Art Journal :D I was just wondering if you are going to be posting March's lesson any time - I do hope you are continuing!! We do art each week, and after Easter will be on your Delaunay lesson. We will drop back to monthly when we catch you up (and use some of your other lessons in between I expect!) but I just love the way the journal is simple enough for my youngest (slightly dysgraphic) son (6) yet enjoyable enough for my eldest (not-a-fan-of-art 15yos) ~ and all the others I have in-between, of mixed artist abilities and enthusiasm. PLEASE keep going! It's such a brilliant project :D

Thanks Caroline, that's so nice to hear. I too am really liking many aspects of the journals, like the fact that the pages are smaller and easier to finish, and that all the art has a "home". I will post some more handouts as soon as next week when Sprint Break helps me catch up. Thanks for the feedback.
