Keith Haring DrawingKeith Haring was one of the first artists to mix street art with the world of high art back in the 1960s. He got his start by decorating billboards in New York subway stations.1. I had some drawing manikins that I inherited from a previous teacher, and figured out how to remove the base and silver pole. The body was placed on a large drawing paper, arranged in a desired action pose and traced. This can be a bit awkward, but I encouraged the students to just make a simple tracing and not worry about details.2. A horizon line may be added, but the body is to remain simple with no face or details. The body and background is colored heavily with oil pastel. When complete, the body may be outlined with a black pastel.
