Dancing Haring Figures

Haring FiltersMore possibilities for coffee filters and liquid watercolor paints, this time as an ode to artist Keith Haring.

PREP: Use an old steam iron to flatten a stack of coffee filters, the biggest size you can find.


1. Students draw a dancing body in pencil on a sheet of copy paper.


2. They trace around just the outside edge with a chisel tipped Sharpie marker.


3. A coffee filter is placed over the drawing and traced again with the same marker.


4. The filter is painted with liquid watercolor paint and allowed to dry on a flat table.
