Create a Fourth of July "Keith Haring" Tablemat
If you're planning a special Fourth of July table why not mix it up a bit from the regular stars-and-stripes theme? For some fun exploration of art history, here's a tablemat project that you and your child can create together. This activity takes its inspiration from the modern artist Keith Haring, who created exuberant paintings of people moving and dancing. Help your child create a tablemat decorated with "Haring figures" and stars in celebration of the Fourth of July that you can use year after year!
What You Need:
- Two pieces of bright red posterboard (22"x28")
- Several pieces each of white and red paper (8-1/2”x11”)
- Glue stick
- Black permanent marker
- “Haring” figures (download here, or create your own)
