This year is the 500th anniversary of Leonardo daVinci’s death, and it is bringing renewed interest to his artistry, his creativity, and his foresight in the arts and sciences. In this hands on class–we’ll learn more about Leonardo as we explore our own creativity with him as our muse. For him, the precepts of scientific-observation, hypothesis, and experimentation were critical to his art. His greatest gift was his ability to make knowledge visible. For him, it was all about the process, not the end-game. Bring any drawing and watercolor materials you have to this class as we learn more about this important artist. We may even try our hand at some portrait drawing which was how Leonardo began his career. Come celebrate one of the greatest and most influential artists of our time.

Class limit: 14.
