Bodies in Motion Inspired by Keith Haring

Keith Haring was a graffiti and pop artist who became widely known for his work in New York City in the 1980's.  He started creating his outline style of artwork on blank advertisement spaces in the NYC subway.    Here are some examples of Haring's work:

Third and fourth grade artists created life-sized figures in the style of Keith Haring.  We are also studying drawing the body in motion in Haring's simplified style.

Dragons in the art room!

Kindergarten artists painted whimsical dragons! We loved that there is no "right way" to draw a dragon.  We added sequins to give our dragons colorful scales and jewels.
