Haring Style Drawings

Sent to us by one of our most active teachers, this project demonstrates the explorative fun that students can have with Keith Haring inspired imagery.


Using Keith Haring's book, TEN as a starting point, children will learn to quantify and visually depict numbers.


Similar to the book, I WISH I DIDN'T HAVE TO SLEEP, containing children's responses to Haring's work, students are encouraged to look at Haring's work, and create their own stories.


Using examples of Keith's own progressive posters as a springboard, students are encouraged to create their own messages in the form of a public poster.


Usually lessons take a class through a project, this lesson takes a class through reflection and display, a great complement to any activity.
