Celebrate Black History with W. H. Johnson

Black History month art collaborative projectIn celebration of Black History month, I’ve created this mural in the style of William H. Johnson (1901-1970), a very talented painter who had a difficult life.

He came to be widely admired for his primitive style and bright colors, but sadly, only after he had passed away. I love the rural scenes that he often painted, so I’ve created a new mural with big, flat shapes in his style of drawing that you may color however you’d like – the bolder and brighter, the better.

To make your own mural, just purchase my $5 PDF template in the store link below. The art is spread out over 25 pages. Print them out, have students color each page, and then tape back together for a finished 40″ x 50″ work of art.
