My third graders have been enjoying learning about the most famous painting in the world, Leonardo DaVinci’s Mona Lisa. I’ve done many different versions of Mona Lisa in past years, including Mini Monas, Cat Monas, and even Giant Monas. We’ve also imagined what Mona Lisa was thinking about and included her thoughts with our artwork.
This year’s Mona Lisa project was inspired by two things – the donation of a beautiful pile of small boxes, and an interesting project that I saw on artist Kim Welling’s blog – sweet little panorama boxes.
Here are our fun little Mona Lisa boxes.
Many of my students planned to hang their Mona Lisa masterpieces on their Christmas trees!
