the keith haring project...a little involved...a little messy...

by karen #1965 3rd grade teacher well, i like keith haring stuff...it is simple, but cool...kids can identify with it...they think, hey, he is a famous artist...i can draw like that...so i talked about keith and we looked at the this site...
haringkids.com...and i got the kids to draw their own "keith things"...and i went down to the copy machine and blew them up all different sizes on different colors of paper...then, i got kids to draw lines with chalk on black paper...like this...
now one of my kids...well she just kinda goes to her own beat and tune...and i like it...here is her grid..that is not really a grid, but is is getting down and creative...so who cares...?
and then...they glue their "keith things" on the black paper with chalk...
and i hung 'em high and hung 'em low!

keith is on everything...
check out his art on wheels...

the skateboard...!
the bike...!

the car...!

Get your motor running

Head out on the highway
Looking for adventure
In whatever comes our way


Yeah, darling
Gonna make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once and
Explode into space


I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racing in the wind
And the feeling that I'm under


Yeah, darling
Gonna make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once and
Explode into space


Like a true nature child
We were born
Born to be wild
We have climbed so high
Never want to die
Born to be
wild

Born to be wild
(Steppenwolf, 1968)


is this keith wild enough for you?


happy may 4, 2010!
