If you enjoy learning about different artists in your homeschool you will love this series on famous artists. There are so many wonderful artists out there that you can study, but I have picked some of our personal favorites to highlight. Studying artists and their works of art go along great with a Charlotte Mason style education, and you can also pair it up with history as well. Each week in this series we will be highlighting an artist, with free resources, printables and unit studies to give you an in depth study. This week is Leonardo Da Vinci.

Leonardo Da Vinci is a famous artist and scientist from the Renaissance and Middle Ages time period. Not only did he create some amazing masterpieces, he was also a famous scientist who was a pioneer in the medical field, and an amazing inventor during the Renaissance. There are so many different ways you can study Leonardo Davinci. You can study his artwork and do an artist study, you can study his drawings for an anatomy lesson, or you can study his inventions and do and inventor study. I love how studying this man can cover Science, Art and History at the same time! 

Create a Mona Lisa Parody – Creating your own Mona Lisa parody is a memorable art project for your homeschool art history lesson plans. Combine this activity with research about Leonardo DaVinci, and your kids will rank up in art connoisseur status.
