Leonardo da Vinci is one of the most well know names in art, because of his calculated study of life. Leonardo's endless quest to create reality led him to constantly observe, experiment and invent. As a self-taught student of life, Leonardo's sketchbooks are essentially reference manuals. He was not interested in simply being the best at any one thing, Leonardo da Vinci was interested in finding out what that meant. He used art to create illusion, as well as to define reality. He had the mind of a creative scientist. He had balance between left and right brain, and vision beyond the imagination of many of his contemporaries. Leonardo da Vinci is the definition of quality over quantity in art. He was never fixated on cranking out work, he was interested in the process, and the result. Leonardo used science and mathematics to create his best works. His experimental concoction used to create the Last Supper painting in the refectory dining hall is a clear example of his desire to come up with innovative ways of doing things.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
