What educators are saying

We loved learning about Charley Harper, and this was the perfect project for middle school art. Thank you!
We used this with SMART - Science, Math and art and it was soooo successful! I love Charley Harper and now I have a whole class of students who do too!


Students learn to appreciate the application of geometric shapes and lines through research, evaluation and the simplification of an animal into basic shapes and lines. Students will use tools such as rulers, protractors and compasses to re-create the animal in a graphic style similar to Charley Harper, trying to capture the personality of each animal.
