What is the artist trying to communicate? How much do my personal emotions influence how I perceive a work of art? Where can I find art today? How can I transfer the ideas that I get from art to my personal and professional life? Moleskine introduces Art Journal, a new notebook that you can fill using the subject areas and specific sections for archiving, designing and reflecting on one's experience with art.
The notebook includes a calendar marked with important world events, a timeline that traces the history of art from impressionism to the present, different subject sections to fill out with information and impressions on exhibits, museums, private viewings, works of art and artists, and blank pages to fill and customize with drawings, photos, labels and personal notes.
To try out the page layouts or download them in your language, all the templates are available here.
Art Journal was written in collaboration with Art For Business, a non-profit association that has been promoting research on the artistic experience since 2007.
The Art Journal is part of the Moleskine Passions collection, a series of notebooks dedicated to the passions of life; new additions for 2012 include Home Life, Restaurant, Chocolate and Beer. All are available at the Moleskine Store.
