Artist, inventor and quintessential Renaissance man—that’s Leonardo da Vinci! Join us as we challenge our own creativity by learning about one of the world’s most creative and complex men. With Walter Isaacson’s new biography, Leonardo da Vinci (Simon & Schuster, 2017) as a source book, we will explore Leonardo’s fascination with the arts and sciences, humanities, and technology—from Mona Lisa to human anatomy; from flying machines and military devices to architecture and engineering; and describing the tongue of a woodpecker. Just as Leonardo’s unstoppable curiosity and imagination ventured from one discipline to another, our study will not be confined to Isaacson’s book but will include additional materials with supplemental readings and lots of videos. We will begin by reviewing his life from childhood in Florence to his time in Milan, Rome and France, and each week we will explore a different aspect of his curiosity and creative genius.
