AS fine Art students applied Leonardo da Vinci’s advice to their own drawings this week, when they traced direct from a still life they had been drawing!
DaVinci went outdoors and placed a sheet of glass across two easels and traced landscapes to study perspective. It wasn’t cheating; it was part of his lifelong search for science, truth and accuracy in his art. Here, he was studying perspective.
Students were then able to use this as an aid to assess whether they had seen and drawn correctly!
We are so Renaissance! (Except they didn’t have acetate or sharpies!) The examples show how well our students had done!
