Keith Haring Project

I really love the art of Keith Haring. I like how he turned his simple figures into complex designs full of rhythm, color, movement, and life. I also love how he used his art and fame as an artist to support positive causes such as AIDS awareness and anti-drug campaigns.

I recently taught a lesson about Keith Haring to my Drawing 2 students and had them complete their own Haring style drawing and then paint it with watercolors. Here are some of the lovely results:
