Fifth-graders from Nancy Randazzo's art class at Edna Louise Spear Elementary School studied the artwork Keith Haring, a popular New York City street artist from the 1980s, according to a statement released by the school district.
On Jan. 22, students made drawings on black construction paper and chalk posting the, throughout the building to create images in Haring’s style.
The project borrowed Haring's technique of drawing with chalk on black paper, placing the art all over New York City subways, engaging riders with their social commentary. They became known as his "subway drawings." Haring died of complications from AIDS in 1990.
