Today Is World Art Day!

A great artist once lived called Leonardo da Vinci. Historical records document how multi-talented this man was in his time:painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. The ever-famous Mona Lisa painting was by this genius of an artist. Da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452 out of wedlock to a notary, Piero da Vinci and a peasant woman, Caterina. On May 2, 1519, he passed on.

April 15th (Leonardo’s birthday) has therefore been set as World Art Day to celebrate the contribution of artists worldwide through their creative prowess. If you are an artist in any field at all, today is your day. Let us keep on being creative. Let us not discourage the young ones from taking up careers in art.
