Leonardo da Vinci - Inventor and Artist

This week our after school students learned about the Italian inventor, painter and sculptor...Leonardo da Vinci. After examining drawings of inventions from his sketchbooks, students diagrammed their own fantastic inventions. Anatomy books and specimens from nature were used as resources for ideas and design. Students drew with walnut ink, similar to the inks used during Leonardo da Vinci's lifetime and bound their finished sketches in leather notebooks.
