It is finally spring! To celebrate this glorious event I came up with a fun Keith Haring inspired lesson. I first showed them a powerpoint altered from the internet (all iffy material deleted). Each child was asked to come up with their most awesome dance move in which later I would trace around. The student then took inspiration from Keith Hering's work and colored their shapes. They learned to blend and mix the colors. The kids and I had a blast! Not only were they understanding street art, but also understanding the work of Keith Hering. Disadvantage: It was incredibly hard to keep the kids clean.
Overall one of the best lessons I have taught for the young ones! Must try! (All you need is street chalk)
Great online resource for kids: http://www.haringkids.com/ It has digital interactive coloring pages. (even includes over 180 free lesson plans!)
