Keith Haring Stamping - Year 5

Year 5 have been practising their skills in stamp making, using Keith Haring's art as inspiration.

Keith Haring was an American artist in the 1980s who was influenced by cartoons and pop art. Throughout his career, Haring devoted much of his time to public works, which often carried social messages. Sadly, he died aged just 31. However, his messages of love, acceptance and humour are enjoyed by many people today.

We made our stamps using polystyrene and card, and found that bright coloured ready mixed paint gave the best effect.
