Young scholars use contour drawings of the Mona Lisa. Students turn the drawings upside down and cover 3/4 of the drawing with a sheet of construction paper. They "erase from their minds" what the drawing is, and complete the quarter section of lines, then move the sheet to cover 1/2 of the drawing. When their drawings are complete, they turn the portrait into a modern portrait by adding nose rings, sunglasses, etc. Young scholars color their portraits with colored pencils.
