Keith Haring ( 1958-1990) Contemporary Artist Work is graphic expression using the simplicity of line. Fusion of Art & Life (created public art). His work always carries a specific message.

When they are dry cut each figure out. After you cut them out go around the outside edge in black sharpie (similar to Keith Harings figures) Arrange your 6 figures in an interesting composition on your large paper.
