Combining the standard early-childhood project of full size traced self-portraits and the work of Keith Haring, this lesson adds a refreshing variation to an old classic.
Inspired by both Haring's line and the artwork of the indigenous people of Australia, Aborigines, the students from this school in Texas created distinctly patterned portraits using markers and paint.
Middle School students from St. Petersburg, Florida, were asked to draw a picture inspired by the work of Keith Haring. The pictures represent world issues that affect their lives. The pictures were later combined to make a 6 foot painted puzzle, and put on display at the Florida Holocaust Museum.
Groups of students were given the task of creating a Haring-style painting that communicated a message about an important social issue.
Using the theme of "pressure", this class explored ways in which they experience and deal with social pressures in their everyday life and painting these images on to a large-scale table.
Students paint a Haring portrait in motion and then transfer the image onto a shrink film magnet.
Kids brainstorm ideas, make sketches, practice painting, and work together to paint this inspiring mural. This project was sent in by a very special program called FreeArts, developed to help abused children.
One class' response to Haring's work after visiting our site, a full size figurative mural. The perfect project to build upon for individual children or a whole group.
Influenced by the exhibition of Keith Haring's work at the Art Gallery of Ontario, local children create their own full-scale mural, and donate it to a local church.
A favorite of Keith's, Children's Village students build an outdoor totem pole while they explore the relation between place and identity.
