For the major project of my sixth graders this term, I asked them to make an abstract rendition of Sandro Botticelli's Madonna and Child and Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. The project was called Renaissance to Modern Art. I gave them a really short introduction about Pablo Picasso's works. I guess looking at Picasso's masterpieces gave them an inspiration because their artworks turned out really good. The students needed to paint the artwork on an 12x16 canvas using either tempera or acrylic paint.
Here are some of their artworks:
Madonna and Child by Carmel Baulita (Grade 6-B)
Madonna and Child by Marga Ebrada (Grade 6-B)
Abstract Mona Lisa by Mina Heo (Grade 6-A)
Abstract Mona Lisa by Niqui Belen (Grade 6-A)
