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!
Episode 1 - Keith Haring and line drawing

Episode 2 - Keith Haring: Hit the streets!
Keith Haring loved to work outside on the street, so that everyone could see his art. He put up posters, painted on walls and drew in chalk on pavements and in subway stations. Now it’s your turn!
Episode 3 – Keith Haring: Let’s Dance!
Keith Haring loved dancing and music. He saw breakdancers doing the coolest moves on the street. We see lots of dancing figures in his work. Will you be able to copy these moves?
Episode 4 – The Haring code: Getting to grips with Keith Haring
Keith Haring used his own unique visual language in his art. Some of his symbols – like the dog and the radiant baby - have become legendary, but what do they actually mean? Discover five of the symbols here and make up your own symbolic language.
