Keith Haring (5th Grade)

5th grade just completed the last lesson of the year on the artist Keith Haring.  After showing them a Flip Chart on the artist along with some images of his artwork we got busy making our own Haring figure.  I showed them how to draw a figure.  Then they cut out the figure and glued it down to a new piece of construction paper of a contrasting color.  They traced around it leaving a 1/4" border, then cut that out and glued it to another piece of colored paper.  After doing it once again they cut out motion marks and surround their figure with them in order to replicate Harings work and show movement.  Here are some examples of their work.
