We started browsing your website.We have tried to work in parallel with subjects such as computer science, English, Italian and arte.We have observed the works of Keith, places of production. The children told their feelings, their emotions and interpretations. Haring's works have "hit" the eyes and hearts of the students. Then they tried to make ... And they found that forms, seemingly simple, are complex, well proportioned and exceptionally expressive, but not easy to play.The kids have read the image of some works, they wanted to identify themselves and give their shape and finally have produced a poster that represents their stay and live at school ... to grow and learn together!
After looking at works from Keith Haring's "Dance" book, 3rd grade students use a square piece of paper to design their own Keith Haring dance composition. Using markers, they outline and color in their shapes solidly like Keith Haring's paintings
Students follow my step by step example of an abstract drawing. I do and then they do.
The idea is to see how similar we can make the same drawing focusing on placement and scale.
This made possible by utilizing the simple understanding of point, line, and middles using the grid.
I am a fan of Haring Kids website and enjoy sharing it with people I know and children that I share my love of art with. This week, I taught some of my neighborhood kids (ages 4-11) about Keith Haring and his art. Each child created their own Haring inspired art work to take home with them.
The project was split into several lessons. At the beginning the pupils got some information about Keith Haring We created some colorful Keith Haring paintings on the break court in front of our school. There are now two big paintings, where the children can do hop-games. The other paintings show typical school subjects like art.
Students from this Montessori school in Canada studied Keith Haring and then worked collaboratively to make several murals, custom t-shirts, and sculptures, all exploring the theme of "Peace, love and the environment."
Elementary school students from Arkansas create a collaborative, large-scale project inspired by Keith Haring's subway art.
