Let us take a look at a website for Keith Haring http://www.haringkids.com/master_act_color.htm Keith Haring is a contemporary artist that uses symbols and colors to communicate ideas in his work. Explore his website paying attention to the sections: Keith and Art. Notice how he used colors, bold lines and shapes. Think about how you can communicate an idea using these ideas in your print. Look at the poster section under art and think about what idea you want to communicate. For example: Family, Friends, Fun, Celebration, Helping Others and more!
