Year 4 - Art Day

4th January 2023

Today, we have looked at the artist Keith Haring. We discovered that he created most of his artwork to inspire children and adults all over the world. His artwork was of a cartoon/graffiti style, and he loved to include illustrations of babies, dogs and people dancing in his artwork. We created factfiles on him as an artist, and made our own collaborative class piece of art by replicating his work. We also went outside and drew with chalk in his artistic style, as this is something that he did on the pavements of America! In the afternoon, we made our own Haring-inspired work by splitting a page into 4 parts and creating our own cartoons/drawings. We created an outline around our cartoons to really make them stand out against the backgrounds.
