    Kids Create: Basquiat Crowns & Portraits

    Haitian American and Puerto Rican artist Jean-Michel Basquiat took inspiration from many sources as a creative child: At 8 years old, he drew cartoons influenced by comic books and Alfred Hitchcock films, according to research compiled by Franklin Sirmans. So too can your crafty kiddos be inspired by Basquiat himself at this library event, where supplies are provided to make a self-portrait and cardboard crown in the artist’s signature style. Browse the library’s many media resources on Basquiat for more inspo, such as Ma Isabel Sanchez Vegara’s biography on the artist aimed at young readers. – James Scott
