Transcript of Art!

Art! By Lara and Grace Oil pastels were used to create this mountain scene. Art is a really fun and easy thing to do. Almost anyone can create a masterpiece if they tried.

You can use a pen or a pencil, oil pastel or colouring pencil, poster paints or watercolours. In 1452, Leonardo Da Vinci was born in an Italian town called Vinci. He lived in a time period called the Renaissance, when everyone was interested in art. Even though Da Vinci was a great artist, he became famous because of all the other things he could do. He was a sculptor, a scientist, an inventor, an architect, a musician, and a mathematician. When he was twenty, he helped his teacher finish a painting called The Baptism of Christ. When he was thirty, he moved to Milan. That is where he painted most of his pictures. DaVinci's paintings were done in the Realist style.
