Hi team!

Picasso wanted to show this woman’s unhappiness and tears rather than to create an exact portrait of her face. The jagged shapes like pieces of glass, the bright colours and the thick black outlines make us think of strong feelings, like anger or sadness. Can you imagine her sobs and tears?

She’s holding a handkerchief. She’s wearing a red hat with a flower in it, and her hair is neatly combed, as if she dressed for an important occasion.

What do you think has upset her so much?

Now it’s your turn, talk to a partner.

The “Mona Lisa”, Leonardo da Vinci. (1503-1506)

Hi kids!

Your favourite painting is… “Mona Lisa” at least, for most of you.

The Mona Lisa is probably the most famous portrait in the world, but not much is known about it.

Look into her eyes and at her mysterious smile. Is she looking at you? Is she following you? Is she happy? Is she sad?

No one knows the right answer, so your guess is as good as mine;)

Enjoy the video!

Hello Lucy! Nice to meet you!

Hi kids!

She’s our pet Lucy and she’s really happy! She’s going to help us! Remember, she can’t speak Galician or Spanish so we are going to try to speak English as much as we can 😉

A big hug,

Teacher Montse and Lucy
