Now your studies about Pop Art can include a Keith Haring drawing project. This step by step tutorial will show students of all ages just how it’s done.
Growing up, Keith Haring wasn’t interested in the kind of formal art he saw in museums, he thought it was too boring. He was more interested in cartoons, like the kind that Disney created. He spent hours drawing them with dad, who also drew as a hobby.
Keith ended up becoming a well known pop artist of the 1980’s. He was famous for a style of bold figures with bright colors, and radiating lines coming from them. This tutorial will show students how to imitate one of his famous paintings of two figures sharing a hug.
