Did you enjoy this project? Yes.

About: We decided to show Leonardo’s ideas transformed into modern day inventions. In his drawings he showed how he could transfer his artistic ability to science. His sketches helped shape the world that we know today so we decided to show them in a modern day physical form. We wanted to show how sketches and what modern day invention he predicted. His idea of the helicopter has evolved a lot from his ideas and sketches but still has some of the same components as he did. His tanks also predicted what we know today. Modern tanks still use the concept of angled armor because it makes the armor thicker and harder to penetrate if shot at. That’s why we decided to show his sketches and predictions in our art.

Title: The Vitruvian Man, Give Me Wings

Theme: Leonardo da Vinci: Collisions of Art and Science

Materials and techniques: Spray paint, and permanent marker on canvas.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes.

About: Our piece represents a few of da Vinci’s ideas and creations throughout his artistic legacy. The wings, in this piece, are a representation of the glider wings that he sketched, but sadly never saw created. The Vitruvian Man represents the anatomy he studied. He participated in the dissection of cadavers and from his observations, drew detailed studies. On the circle around the Vitruvian Man we included the names of many of his inventions in order to call attention to his many areas of curiosity. He chose to use his artistic talent to illustrate his scientific observations.

Title: Hands on Leonardo da Vinci

Theme: Leonardo da Vinci: Collisions of Art and Science

Materials and techniques: Spray paint, acrylic paint, and permanent marker on canvas.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes.

About: Everything that we do has a little bit of science in it. Leonardo had a lot to do with that. Science and art made up his life. He designed a lot of inventions like the machine gun, and the parachute, and paintings like the Mona Lisa, and The Last Supper. Although the inventions that he made took al lot of though, he always came back to them because they were so complex. The things that he studied helped him design and paint things like the Last Supper, or design the tank. The things that Leonardo studied inspire us still today.
