Interdisciplinary and inter-program course on Leonardo!


This semester, Aaron Fine (Studio Art) and Julia DeLancey (Art History) are team-teaching a JINS seminar (Junior Interdisciplinary Seminar) on Leonardo da Vinci.  In the course, students are closely reading Leonardo’s own writings and exploring his notebooks on-line.  In addition, as students at a liberal arts and sciences institution they are being challenged to embrace all the ways of knowing the world which Leonardo used:  so, all students draw, all students do some science, all students write (and reflect in their writing), and so on.  We’ll be doing some more scientific work later in the semester and some building too but for today here are some pictures of students working on observational drawing.  Stay tuned for more!
