4th Grade Charley Harper Birds

Painting with Tints and Shades

How it was made

The fourth grader students learned about the artist Charley Harper who is an American artist best known for his stylized paintings and prints of animals. They then had the opportunity to try their hand making their own bug, bird or fish in his style. Students also learned about mixing paint to create their own colors with a focus on using tints and shades in their artwork.
