A group of art students had the opportunity to visit the Keith Haring exhibition at Tate Liverpool recently. The visit was part of their Arts Award Discover course for which they are required to research artists and their work. Whilst they were at the exhibition, they were encouraged to sketch ideas based on the art on display.

A few of the comments from the students were:

“My favourite piece of art was the dog.”

“I enjoyed drawing pictures whilst at the exhibition.”

“It reminds me of graffiti and comic book art.”

“My favourite part was the room with the special lighting and music.”

“The art uses lots of bright colours.”

Art, Design & Textiles tutor, Diane McLoughlin commented:

“The exhibition was really fun, vibrant and colourful. There was large open spaces which gave the students the opportunity to draw from the artworks. The artwork was very accessible and students felt they could make their own Keith Haring inspired art.”

The students have produced their own art inspired by what they learnt on their visit. Here is some of their work:
