Keith Haring Inspired Dancers

Students in the first through third grade classes created these fun Keith Haring inspired artworks. We began by watching a video that combines a Madonna Get Into the Groove Remix with some really cool Haring style dancing figures. Next, the students used a handout to create their own dancing dogs, cats and mice. They could move them around the page and move the arms and legs into different positions. This is a great lesson on repetition in artwork. The figures were then outlined in black and colored with markers. To fill in the background, students did some crayon texture rubbings and filled in the rest of the space with watercolor paint. I love Keith Haring's artwork and the students really enjoyed the combination of art and music!
