THIS LESSON USES THE NYC BLUEPRINT LEARNING STANDARDS.
This lesson is part one of a three lesson unit designed to teach young students (first or second grade) about various types of line, and texture. This lesson places emphasis on the movement students use to create lines by having them create visual roadmaps and follow them with gesture. The magic of their gesture will be reinforced as their invisible journeys are revealed to them through the technique of wax resist.
Students will learn about Keith Haring's use of symbols by examining his bold, direct lines and images and create their own.
New York City High school students explore movement and performance in this lesson, which explores urban vernacular dance.
After being introduced to selected pieces of Keith Haring's work, students brainstormed for words and concepts that they wished to illustrate in a Haring-esque style. Attention was given to color, composition, and how well the word was illustrated by the student-artists' depiction of it.
