We start off the lesson by learning about the artist Keith Haring, a street artist from the East Coast. Keith Haring's artwork was greatly influenced by graffiti and Pop Art. Graffiti is any artwork that is produced outside on the public streets. Pop art is an art movement about making art using everyday objects like soup cans, hamburgers and the American flag.
We will be making our own simple human figure. These figures need to show Rhythm and Movement. They can show rhythm and movement by the poses they are in and the lines that shoot out of them, like a burst.
Each figure will be painted using one color and outlined in black, keeping it simple but striking!
