Make a Mona Lisa, FREE Download

I’ve made a printout (download HERE) that includes only Mona Lisa’s face and hands so students can creatively fill in the missing parts. I recommend using lots of lines and at least two thicknesses of markers so that shapes can be distinguished, but by all means, experiment to see what you can come up with. Enjoy!

I LOVE these! Thank you so much!! I have some pretty creative kids in my class--can't wait to see what they can do with these.

I love your website! This project in particular is a great idea and a nice variation on parodies that I do with my classes. I recently did some research into public domain because our district is really coming down hard on copyright with us. I know you were generous in providing the pdf for people to use and I am grateful, but how would this portion of the painting fall under copyright since it isn't the entire painting owned by the Louvre? I know they will ask me when I ask them to print anything for me :). Thanks for your insight. It is still a grey area for me.

Thanks for asking. Paintings become copyright free once the artist has been dead for at least 70 years. That's the law, so print away.

I used these in my Da Vinci art class for grades K-3. The kids loved the freedom to make Mona Lisa anyway they liked. We also had them do the opposite (printed body with blank face), so they could get the idea of drawing faces. All good fun! Thanks so much for sharing the ideas!
