modern mona lisa




Here's a sampling of our school's 7th graders' first finished art projects of the year - making a Modern Mona Lisa. (One of the kids even drew her with braces. Isn't that so funny?)

Here's the link to the lesson, which I found on a West Virginia Art Education site, if you're interested. It was really well put together, and easy to teach. I always enjoy talking about facial proportion with kids - it's such an eye-opener to really figure out where things go on a face, you know?

Lynne,
You are just AMAZING! I know those kids LOVE your lessons. I wish I could have been there. Why don't you do this for an enrichment activity. (No, I'm not kidding.)

Lauren said...

Great drawings. Much better than my kids rendition of it when we went to the Louvre:) You are an AMAZING teacher.

This is so great!I would love to learn facial proportions! That is one of the reasons I do not draw! I would go to that Enrichment.
Or....I know you are busy right now...but what about an art enrichment activity group where we work on different lessons of art??? That is something I would want to do:landscapes, still life, portrait, etc. Just food for thought!

These make me wish I taught art! Or that I was back in a high school art class; just the art classes though, the rest of HS I wouldn't mind not revisiting:) What a gift art classes are to kids at that age.

I was very fond of looking at the pictures. The kids are very talented. They have their own interpretation of mona lisa. Their mind is very imaginative and creative.
