Being an art teacher, I always get asked, who's your favorite artist. I find it really hard to pick just one. I'm so inspired by many artists. But, I usually say, it's the artist that I am teaching about at that time, because, they become not only inspirational to me, but to my students as well. We are learning about Keith Haring and how he got his start as an artist in the New York subway stations. He was inspired by graffiti artists and by pop artists as well. I love his whimsical figures that seem to be vibrating or in motion. Thanks Keith Haring for inspiring us, to make colorful, whimical art.
