Keith Haring Pictures
The 1st graders took a look at some of Keith Harings pictures and we discussed how he liked to make his people very simple, an outline, without details such as facial features. He also liked to show movement and action in his pictures. I had the students think of the different poses they would draw if their figures were dancing, hiking, diving, running, jumping, etc... We started off with drawing stick figures and then outlined them with sharpie marker leaving some space around the lines. I also had the students incorporate "action lines" into the picture to give the impression of movement. A great website about Keith Haring that students can visit is http://www.haringkids.com/.
