Transforming Mona Lisa from Art/Technology teacher Olejarz's, Eisenhower Middle School, Wyckoff, NJ. Some advice on how students can make their own Mona Lisa, and a wonderful gallery of student's work. Although none are technically superior, there's some real creativity in "Egyptian Mona" and others. Olejarz has similar projects on Munch's The Scream and Wood's American Gothic.
