Pop Art with Keith Haring

All classes learned about the Pop Art era of the 1960’s featuring artists like Andy Warhol, Roy Litchenstein, Claes Oldenburg, and Keith Haring that was influenced by them.

3rd and 5th grade focused on Keith Haring, and his fun figures.

They learned how to turn a stick figure into a human, how a figure is only made of shapes, and that the knee bone was connected to the hip bone. Sing along with me!

Seriously, it was awesome to watch them discover how to draw figures!

3rd graders used complimentary colors in their paintings. Each figure and background, being directly across from each other on the color wheel.

5th graders were only required to include at least four figures and once they were drawn, to make their backgrounds POP!
