Leonardo's Drawings

On the second day at the art session, the class was presented with an image of an abstract artwork by an artist and asked to “copy the picture onto a blank piece of paper while imagining the painter's intention.”

Then, on the third day, the participants produced their own original piece, again based on a real object.

The results were astounding in from most students in the class.

So get out your pencils and copy a few drawings from the 'Masters.'
