For this unit my Student Teacher Kayla Thoits had the opportunity to teach Value through the inspiration of the artist Keith Haring. Keith Haring was a street artist in the late eighties and early nineties where he created glorified stick figures through pose and movement incorporating vibrant colors. Students learned how to mix paint to gain three values using one of their primary colors and then another three values through complementary colors.

Vocabulary Learned: Keith Haring, Street Art, Movement, Value, Design Element, Color Wheel, Complementary colors, Primary colors, outlining,
