I'm an English teacher here in Brazil, so I made so my classrooms had contact with Haring's Artworks by printing a bunch of them and putting them on the walls, as soon as they settle down, I began asking them about the pieces, the colors, the messages, when and where did they think they were made and finally talked about our man and his story.
Taking on the role of a t-shirt designer— “Keith Haring Style”
The lesson's goal was for students to pretend that they were “reopening” the Pop Shop in NYC that closed in 2005. They were given the challenge to design and showcase new and improved t-shirts that were marketable to sell. They could use any surface application such as dyeing, bleaching, and fabric paint to accomplish the task and it had to be wearable!
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.
