The WEA (West Bucks Village Branch) is holding a Day School in Haddenham Methodist Church on Friday 7th April, from 10.00am — 4.00pm on the Subject: "Leonardo Da Vinci — The Renaissance Man'.
The tutor will be Paul Ranford.
His aim will be to provide an understanding of the varied works of Leonardo da Vinci, and of how those works fit into the context of his life and times.
The day will cover Leonardo as:
- A sculptor
- A painter
- A scientist
- An anatomist
- A mathematician
- A cartographer
- An engineer and builder ...
and an examination of the question — was Leonardo the "Renaissance Man" and "Genius" of legend? Or simply an extraordinary late-medieval figure?
The course will also examine fundamental ideas about the nature of the universe that informed Leonardo's work.
The course fee is £25.00 (Course ID: C3739949).
To enrol online, go here.
