Many Mona Lisas

I started the school year teaching all of my students about the mysteries and wonder of the Mona Lisa and the genius of the man behind the painting, Leonardo da Vinci.  Needless to say, Mona Lisa is our classroom mascot.  Here is a quick synopsis of what was covered for each project…

K: Recreating the Mona Lisa

1st: Where would you take the Mona Lisa to really make her smile?

2nd: Animals a la Mona Lisa. This one aptly titled “Meowna Lisa”


3rd: Mona Lisa moves into a new environment

4th: Mona Lisa murals: Along with the bottle cap mural, classes created 4’x6′ painted murals for the hallways and one smaller mural made out of model magic (not pictured).  The mural on the left was done in the style of Roy Lichtenstein, and the mural on the right was painted in the style of Andy Warhol.

5th: Pop up-op art-Mona Lisa creations
