Keith Haring: 4 online activities for kids and families

BOZAR AT HOME

Share the fascinating world of Keith Haring with your children! Keep busy and stay creative during the lockdown by following us through a series of activities inspired by the famous New York artist of the eighties.

Take part in these activities and discover the artist’s aesthetic and social commitment. What was he looking to express through his colourful paintings? Why was he so interested in symbols? Why do his characters speak out to us?

We will regularly offer you a new feature to discover. Check them out below!
