This week in Neutron Electron Art we looked at Keith Haring subway drawings.We
talked about why Keith Haring chose to make art in the subway and how making art
in the subway also shaped the types of images he used.The kids also noticed that
he was really trying to tell stories with his images.haringkids.com is a good
place to check him out.
The kids used chalk on black paper to try their own Keith Haring type artworks.
We also worked on wish flags.The kids each had 4 squares of fabric to write or
draw their wishes on.They then used the sewing machine and yarn to turn their
squares into banners.
