Right before winter break, I had one of those awkward days where I taught one day of students who were done with current projects and not mentally prepared to start anything new. I was also in need of something more wintery to hang quick. So.... we made a one day Keith Haring Snowboarder Mural!
This was not a "real project"... I did not spend much time talking about Keith Haring. I had a couple visuals on the smart board for a visual reference and shared the basics. They all liked his work and were ready to create!
I had students focus their time on designing a creative snowboard. So, they traced MY Keith Haring figure patterns on to colored construction. Most students had time to make 2 snowboarders. They loved it! Most the work was for me... I spent my workday changing the large boards. Taking down the old mural and hanging this one for the next several weeks. I love adding texture to a board when I can. It is not overwhelming, just a hint. But it makes a rather simple concept look more finished!
