Let me teach Art to your child(ren) or students through rich, guided video lessons. Simply gather your art supplies, play the video in your homeschool or classroom (pausing &/or rewinding as necessary), then start creating a masterpiece right away!

This lesson will be delivered to you via TPT streaming video. It was created for upper elementary through high school, but can be adapted for younger students as well.

The Mona Lisa is hands-down the most widely recognized work of art in the world. Over 5 centuries old, “she” is shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Da Vinci carried the portrait with him everywhere he went, believing he had never finished it. Upon his death, the Mona Lisa was inherited by his assistant, Salai, and was later sold it to the King of France, Francis I.

In this lesson, we will not attempt to copy the great master’s painting. Rather, we will have a bit of fun with mixed media – ripping paper, decoupaging, painting and drawing. Get ready to get your fingers really sticky!
