Mona Lisa Frown

Lesson Plan Published 8/25/13 Last updated on 5/16/18

Use the Puppet Warp tool in Photoshop to change the expression of a famous portrait to tell a story of what happened after the famous portrait was painted. For this activity, I used the Mona Lisa and made her frown. Obviously, Leonardo da Vinci must have said something to offend her. What?

This is perfect! Looking for a one day lesson (after learning puppet warp) and this is great. Thanks for sharing!

I didn't know about Puppet warp. It would take me next to no time to make some great resourses to inspire writing. I can also use puppet warp to teach children with autism to read facial expressions.
