Day 10: Conflict Resolution –
Keith Haring Figures Part III

Goal:

    Students work together to create a mural modeling cooperation and conflict resolution

Process:

  1. Have the students look at their drawings from the last class. Ask them to pick a pose they would like to draw.
  2. On the floor lay out life sized pieces of paper. (They need to be bigger than life-sized to allow for the adding of machine parts. Best if cut from a roll.) Have the students pair-off and take turns tracing each other in the pose they have selected. Use very light pencil or vine charcoal that is easily erased or wiped off. Have them do a loose outline of the body, keeping in mind the “Haring style.”
  3. Have each student change the shape of the figure and incorporate their machine parts into their figure. They must have their figure interact with at least two others. (In other words, a lever from a foot will go through a hole on another figure and a wheel for a head will fit into another gear or lever on someone else’s figure. They need to consider size of gears, wheels and their teeth!)
  4. Have the students paint their figures in bright colors of their choosing.
  5. Have the students outline their figures with a heavy black line and add whatever other signs, symbols or marks on them.
