Leonardo di Vinci

Online Art and Art History Class

Learn to draw in the style of Leonardo di Vinci in this live online art class. Meet this extraordinary multi-talented Renaissance Man who seemed to be good at everything, from science to poetry to art. A true genius, handsome and eccentrically dressed, he left many projects incomplete. The Mona Lisa remains the iconic symbol for art, while his “Vitruvian Man” is famous for the perfectly proportioned man.

About Drawing Art History

Each Drawing Art History class starts with an in-depth lesson about a different celebrated artist. Enjoy learning about the artist's background and contribution to art history from Barbara's passionate and enthusiastic viewpoint. Students will come away with a better understanding of the artist's famous work and how his or her environment and life events influenced it.

Then, Barbara will teach you to duplicate one of their iconic artworks in pastel (or the medium of your choice). She breaks down the method that the artist used so you can create artwork in their signature style.
