After exploring the lines and characters that Keith Haring frequently used, grade three students made prints inspired by the famous Pop Artist. Students created their draft on paper and then transferred their designs on to a Styrofoam printing plate. After the initial print was made students picked one object on their print that the wanted to stand out by printing it with black ink. Take a look at the prints Ms Wilcox and Ms Hooykaas’ classes created. Below that video is the video explaining how we created the prints.
Grade four students have been working on their clay joinery and glazing skills. Inspired by the sculptures of Keith Haring, students created these mini sculptures with a practical purpose. You can see the work that Ms Brinton and Mr. Davidson’s classes created below. If you want a closer look at the work click on the Grade Four Artist Gallery to see the pictures individually.

Ms Bailey’s class has just finished up their Keith Haring inspired paintings. Even when I know exactly what the kids are supposed to be learning. I am sometimes surprised by what they tell me they are learning.
Stay tuned for more colorful work from grade three.
Ms Dripps’ class is the first grade three class to finish their Keith Haring project. We started this project with a game called Roll a Haring. The kids rolled dice to see what elements from Keith Haring’s work they would use in their own paintings. It was really fun! We printed our back grounds using secondary colors and used primary colors to paint our characters. If you want to take a closer look at their work you will find it in the Grade Three Artists Gallery, in the meantime, enjoy the video.

While grade four was waiting for their sculptures to be fired, they experimented with watercolor crayons, using Keith Haring’s iconic Pop Art People to have a little colorful fun.
