ABOUT THE MONA LISA
Da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa using soft outlines and heavy shading, which is a hallmark of Renaissance portraits. No one knows for sure who the Mona Lisa is a portrait of. The best guess is that she was an Italian noblewoman named Lisa Gherardini. This painting is so
valuable, that it is displayed in Paris under bulletproof glass!
Our version of the Mona Lisa focuses on creating value using charcoal pencils. So the kids are asked to think of areas of light and areas of shadow. We’ve also used a bright contemporary landscape as the backdrop to make it lively and more appealing for the age group.
