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!
Reflecting on Text and Context in Art
What does art tell us about the time and place of its creation, and what does the context tell us about an artwork? In this lesson, students consider the work of Keith Haring in the late 1970s and early 1980s, which can be used as a framework for studying any artist and era. Students research historically and culturally significant events as a potential means to understand artists and their works. They create and present slide shows that incorporate images of the work with commentary that place the pieces in their historical and cultural context. Finally, they trace the legacy of their chosen artist via the work of artists who came later or their effect on culture.
Haring's 2-sided mural on a handball court at 128th Street & 2nd Avenue in NYC overlooks the FDR drive. A public site that has brought much acknowledgement since it was painted in 1986. This lesson, organized collaboratively with The Children's Storefront gives local students the opportunity to examine and reflect on one of Haring's most influential landmarks.
