Preschool Artist Study: Leonardo Da Vinci

Leonardo Da Vinci Inspired charcoal art

One of our artists this past school year was Leonardo Da Vinci.  Renaissance Italy is one of my favorite places and times to learn about – I almost created my own major in college just to study it more – so I especially enjoyed showing my children Leonardo’s artwork and reading books about his life.

This video includes how we do artist study, the artwork we looked at for Leonardo, and the other resources we used.  A list of the artwork and links to the resources are below (I found the artwork by searching for the title and “public domain”.)
