Some lessons are just reviewing the piece of art and discussing it but others will be about putting our own spin on some classic art. Today was the Mona Lisa. Let's take a look at that famous picture...
I was going to have the kids simply draw there own version of the Mona Lisa but then because of Pinterest I had a much better idea. Why not use the classic face and hands of the original but add our own artistic elements? Here are the results!! So much fun.
If you decide to do this for yourself you can download your own Mona Lisa Template here.
This is the original template
|Peanut's Masterpiece. (Peanut and I both thought she would look better with eyebrows)|
|I did mine with a bit of a Harry Potter flair.|
You don't need the book to do this awesome activity, just discuss the painting and artist with your kids and then let them have fun. A perfect art lesson for any age!!!
Hopefully Da Vinci isn't rolling over in his grave.
