When we were at the Louvre, Sharon and Jack bought a poster of the Mona Lisa; they planned to use it in one of the art docent lessons. She used it today as part of the lesson on portraits. Jack surprised Sharon by sharing with the class a long description of seeing the Mona Lisa.
The lesson looked at four other portraits: American Gothic by Frank Wood; Don Manuel by Francisco de Goya; and George Washington [shown below] and The Skater by Gilbert Stuart.
For their art projects, the kids created a personalized portrait.
