Keith Haring inspired mural
I'm pretty good at coming up with big projects, and then taking awhile to present them to the world. Last year's 6th graders made a mural based on the awesomely fun art of Keith Haring, with each student designing their own moving 'cookie cutter man.' We got the board ready, got them glued on, I clear coated...and then work came to a grinding halt. We needed a quote. The kids and I searched, but couldn't find the perfect one. So, it sat. We presented what we had completed at the end-of-year school awards ceremony, and I continued the search for the perfect quote. I finally found it-8 months later. Our quote comes from the book, The Crayon Box that Talked, by Shane Derolf. I showed it to our current group of 6th graders, and they think it's perfect (and well worth the wait).
