KEITH HARING HAS HELPED US TO HAVE IDEAS FOR A GREAT CLASSROOM - Hawthorn Year 4
We love the work of artist, Keith haring. His images help us see how we should love one another and care for each other.
"We love because God loved us first," Gospel of John Chapter 4:19
We challenged ourselves to make a Keith Haring figure in clay and then make group sculptures with inspiring titles. Our class rules aren't rules just ideas from Keith about how each of us can help each other be happy in our classroom.
PAIRED SCULPTURE WORK in Year 4
We all made a simple clay figure by rolling a sphere and 2 sausages. We merged the pieces using fingers and clay tools then manipulated the figure into a Keith Haring pose.
In pairs we used our Keith Haring figures to combine and make a group sculpture. We wanted to explore how each figure is supported by another and that is what we should be striving for in our classroom and in life. We then came up with life affirming titles.
Marlo and Sam, 'Friendshipede'.
Catrin and Ella, 'Teamwork makes the dream work'.
Amelia and Emily, 'We saved our friendship'.
KEITH HARING - The boy who couldn't stop drawing!
Hawthorn Class love Keith Haring's message of getting on and showing real friendship. Our friends help us to enjoy our lives and school.
They experimented with all the mark-making tools we could find: 6B, 2B, graphite stick, biro, black felt pen, charcoal, chalk. They layered and experimented all these together and couldn't stop drawing.
The children explored Keith Haring's use of body language to express ourselves and created their own body language for 'Life is great!'.
