Second Grade Shows Movement

Second grade artists looked at Keith Haring for their first full art project this year.

They noticed that they could tell exactly what movement his “bubble people” were doing, even though they didn’t have details like a face, clothing, or a background to give us hints.

We practiced posing and drawing each other in Keith Haring’s bubble person style and focused on each part of the body so that we could best show the movement or action.

This student is posing with his hand over his face in a "dabbing" pose with one leg crossed over the other as well. Two students at the table behind him are looking at him to draw him in his pose.

Then students chose their favorite action pose and created their own bubble person painting!

Our next project will take our movement study a step further and turn it into a 3D sculpture- stay tuned!
