In the Classroom: Heritage Graffiti

Students had been journaling about their family traditions, celebrations, and other things that made their family unique.  Anne Phillips presented the students with a lesson on Keith Haring, the NYC graffiti artist.  Students learned how Haring used very simple imagery that was symbolic and easily recognized; almost a visual language.  Anne presented the class with examples of his artwork and they used the computer to explore the website  Students then created their own graffiti art using imagery that was in someway symbolic of their family.
