Sketchbooks are invaluable and underutilized, and not just in the art room.
Our doors are not yet open, The Leonardo is a fully interactive, hands-on
art, culture and science center inspired by Leonardo's ability to integrate
across art and science. We will exist in one of two international style
buildings here in Salt Lake City. Located on library square, our main
library won the award for 'Library of the Year' 2006. Library Square is the
second most visited site in the state. We are very excited since we are
forging ahead with a new model for museums as well as integrate
sustainability into the design and operation. Anyway, we have a sketchbook
project on our educational resources page if anyone is interested. It is an
evolving project which eventually will have flash drive interfaces. In the
next few months I am hoping to have student sketchbooks displayed along side
the lesson plans. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
