Keith Haring Figures

I must first thank Joanna for this wonderful lesson.
I've done it for two years now and I love the results.

This is the project fifth graders do for Original Works.
We talk about 
Warm and Cool color families.
Contour lines and pattern.
The kids love it.
Day 1:
Investigate Keith Haring.
Draw our two figures.
Outline figures with black sharpie.
Choose 1 warm and 1 cool color to fill in the bodies.
Day 2:
Outline. Outline. Outline.


  1. The radiating lines create so much movement and vitality!

  2. YAY! so glad you love this lesson! this is one i've forgotten about...maybe it's time to pull it out of the vault! they look great!!!
