  • Step 1
    With a pencil, draw a stick figure in an action pose on a sheet of 9x12" black construction paper.
  • Step 2
    Knead approximately 1 oz. of Model Magic until soft. Make a flattened ball for the head, a rectangle for the body and snake-like shapes for the arms and legs. Attach to the paper. Add small accents for the hands and feet.
  • Step 3
    Study the elements (semiotics) commonly used in artwork by Keith Haring. With white chalk, add elements that are similar in style to Haring’s work. Add action lines for your figure and elements.
    Semiotics is the study of signs and symbols, individually or grouped, that can give us more insight about the source and meaning of the artist. Haring
    used semiotics to portray words and themes in his artwork.
