Please Don't Eat the Artwork

ART WITH MS K

Keith Haring Dogs

4 Comments

When I saw this project on Pinterest, I knew my kindergarteners would love it. Keith Haring is one of my favorite artists and I did a project earlier this year with 4th graders inspired by his artwork. The kinders thought these videos were great, they were dancing and moving and grooving.

We began by coloring in triangles and rectangles (these would become the dog’s body, mouth, tail, ears, and legs.)

They looked really cool all together, the kids came up with some pretty neat geometric hipster-esque patterns. Next, it was time to practice cutting and pasting skills. The kiddos assembled their dogs on colorful construction paper and added details and more designs. Check em’ out:

  1. “Doggone it aren’t these tail waggingly cute?” is the punniest thing I’ve read all day. On a relevant note, however, this looks like a fun project that incorporated different ways of thinking. Good idea!

  2. I think it’s great that though Keith Haring’s dogs and figures are solid colored, your kindergarten students went wild with patterns, colors, and designs!

    • Thanks! The kindergarten math curriculum includes a lot of patterns, shapes, and forms so I always try to incorporate that into our projects. It really reinforces the ideas and provides cross curricular support. (They really did “go wild” lol)
