4th grade Keith Haring Positive Negative Designs

We learned about Keith Haring. There is a great Keith Haring website to check out and show your students,

Keith Haring was so original in thought and I wanted to come up with a project that would have the students thinking about different simple people designs as well as, focusing on positive and negative.

So we started with one color sheet 6" x 16" and two 6" x 4". They drw there designs with either pencils or white color pencils to make it clearer.

I showed them how to make "little" cuts an paste it down tightly so it looks like one piece and makes the viewer wonder how they cut it out so neatly and cleanly.

Check them out!

WOW... so impressive!!
