A new take on Mona

During this lesson the children learned a little about the extraordinary life and accomplishments of Leonardo Da Vinci. many children contributed their knowledge about Leonardo to what I presented to the group.

The lesson task I had planned was to place Mona Lisa in contemporary clothes in a modern setting. Most had their own ideas of how they wanted to dress and place Mona Lisa. This was wonderful so they did and produced some great art.

The children received photocopies of Mona Lisa's face and hands. If I do this lesson again I would only give them the face without the neck. Incorporating the hands proved a bit tricky on the size paper they had to work with and proved a point of confusion for some children.

Colour was added with coloured pencils, texts, sharpies, and watercolour paints.
