Welcome to Mona Lisa Lives Here! The purpose of this blog is to share the goings-on of my middle school art room and sometimes other things. I would like you to feel as if you are a fly on the wall, or for a more artistic reference, a brush in the can or a painting on the rack. I believe the middle school art room is a special place to be and I want to give you a chance to be part of it. Occasionally I will share stories of travel, my own art making, or reflections on varied experiences, especially during summer. Enjoy!
My name is Alice Gentili and I teach visual art to about about 500 students each year, but I loop with them for their second year, which makes it easier for all of us. One of our classroom walls holds a collection of Mona Lisas that I have found at flea markets. My students and I go home at the end of every day, but the classroom Monas stay at school. That is why this blog is called “Mona Lisa Lives Here”.
