            a story?
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!

   Art Making: What message do I
      want to send to the world?
Think about how you can communicate
an idea using what you learned from
Toulouse-Lautrec and Keith
Haring.
Create a digital print using only a
few words and bright bold colors and
lines. You may use Photoshop or Kidpix
programs. We will hang these posters
throughout the school so:
Send a positive message to
the world!
