Know your child

I think the interactive art is great for kids. And the evidence of Haring's commitment to children and how he turned his life around after drugs is uplifting. But I feel that someone's sexual preferences one way or the other is an adult agenda and shouldn't be on a children's website.

This title has:

Too much sex
Educational value
Great messages

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

Artist Keith Haring not only left a legacy of funky pop art, he left his mark on children by teaching them to paint large murals and have fun with art. The Keith Haring Foundation was established in 1989 to assist AIDS-related and children’s charities, and this site was borne from their efforts. Safe, colorful and creative, there are myriad activities for kids to learn about Haring and discover or interact with his family-friendly art, including coloring pages (to print or color on screen), screensavers, and e-cards. Bold, bright and cheerful, Haring’s art appeals to kids of all ages.

Online interaction: Users can submit their own artwork and/or provide stories to accompany some existing Haring art. There is no user-to-user contact on the site.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
