Keith Haring Inspired Art

My 3rd-6th grade classes enjoyed learning and creating art work and murals like the artist Keith Haring. 

We began by learning about Haring's life and looked at several of his art pieces and illustrations.  They were also introduced to his kid friendly website at haringkids.com.

The class began by doing several practice sketches.  We discussed how their figures were to show movement, use bright colors and very few details.  They also designed class murals that we hung in the halls of our school.
