The Unquenchable Curiosity of Leonardo da Vinci: Art-Making and Discovery (Summer 2013)
Summer Studio Kids Ages 8-11
Leonardo Da Vinci is celebrated for his wildly inventive imagination. In addition to being one of the greatest painters of all time, Da Vinci was a scientist, musician, architect, engineer, and inventor. All the way back in the 1400s, he imagined and sketched a flying machine, a helicopter and solar power, in addition to his painting and fascination with nature and anatomy.
He was even inventive about how he wrote in his journals, using "mirror writing"–writing backwards to keep his ideas as secret as possible–until he was ready to reveal them. Join us for a fun and inventive week of our own–sketching, inventing and building inspired by Leonardo! Our own inventions will be on display during our Friday exhibition.
We'll have a colorful selection of our own creations, stamped with the pattern of history, on display for families during our Friday afternoon exhibition!
