This art history workbook teaches students about the artist Leonardo da Vinci using the Discipline-Based Art Education model. Students learn about da Vinci through reading and watching a biography of the artist, viewing a codex of his sketchbook on Flying, analyzing a painting, and finally watching a video demonstration for completing their final project. The final project is multiple views of a subject sketches that are then applied to a pyramid template that they fold to create a form.

Students learn about how da Vinci approached the world through examination, sketching, and notes. The final project has students create a pyramid form using sketches of a subject they choose. Once complete the students fill out a reflection sheet on their final artwork.

Worksheets can be used as sub lessons, as enrichment to your art lessons, or as min-lessons on their own. An essential for any art classroom.
