5th grade artists looked at the artwork of Keith Haring. We looked at how he uses lines in his art. For our project these were the rules:
1) Line starts at stops at the same spot (a dot in the corner of paper)
2) Line must stay within half of an inch of itself
3) Line must never cross itself (that'd be a shape)
4) Line can change as often as you like from wavy to zig-zag to castle, etc.
We then traced our hands over our drawings. The lines inside our hands now all turned to shapes. Using thin drawing markers, we colored the shapes.
