Charley Harper-esque Lion

Part of the work for my grad school program is to design lesson plans for various grade levels. For my fifth grade lesson plan, I planned for the kids to make geometric animals paintings, inspired by the artwork of Charley Harper. The kids would get a chance to learn how to use various mathematical instruments (such as rulers, compasses, protractors, right angles, etc.) while designing their animal of choice. They would also be learning about how to incorporate things like pattern, shapes, and symmetry into their artwork.

This was my demo that I made for the lesson plan (remember, this is a project for the fifth grade skill level). I used acrylic paint on an 11"x 14" sheet of bristol board.
