In this lesson students will learn how draw a simplified version of Leonardo daVinci's Mona Lisa c.1503. A brief history of the painting and advanced shading techniques are included. Lessons are step by step and designed for success regardless of the student's level. This drawing is designed to take 45 minutes to complete. While the sample was made with colored pencil, feel free to use paint or pastel. I have been teaching this lesson to students of all ages (preschool to high school) for many years and it is always a huge hit; parents are incredibly impressed!
