Group work like Keith Haring

Group work, made by students of grade 3

You need:
  1. drawing sheet A1 size 
  2. pieces of cardboard 10 by 15 cm
  3. pencil
  4. scissors
  5. glue
  6. colour markers
  7. permanent black marker 
We worked in groups of five students.
Each student draws a figure on a piece of cardboard in the style of Keith Haring: no details, movement, a figure like in a comic. Cut the figures and trace them several times on the big sheet. Working together is required!

- Do not draw twice the same figure next to each other.
- Vary the position: upright, horizontally, diagonally. Turn the cardboard to get a mirror figure.
- Do not start in the middle, but work from the side and place the figures as close to each other.
- Outline all figures with a permanent black marker.
- Divide the intervening areas into smaller areas by straight lines drawn with black marker.
- Choose one colour per person and colour the areas with these five colours.  
- Put your signature on the work like Keith Haring did!

  2. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave today [19 Jun 01:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  3. Wouldn't this be cool GIANT size? Have the kids lie down on mural paper and trace the bodies in Haring-style positions, and then paint similar to the coloring here! Thanks for the idea!
