Learning from the Master: A Conceptual Drawing
Israel's project focused on Leonardo da Vinci: the Scientist, the Inventor, the Artist. He studied da Vinci's legacy and interrogated the perspectives da Vinci represents today. His study took a holistic approach as Israel both read academic articles and followed da Vinci's lead in keeping a notebook/sketchbook to think through the ideas that were presented in his research.
Israel's final project was a conceptual drawing that intersects the different facets of da Vinci through his own interpretation.Check out his drawing!
Israel is a 17 year-old high school student from Phoenix, AZ.
In regards to my mentor and the program, I really enjoyed my time as a whole. It's not often that you get to study something you actually enjoy with a PhD graduate--or rather a friend because even after weeks of working together, you can really start to appreciate each other.
