Born on April 15, 1452, in Vinci, Italy, Leonardo da Vinci was concerned with the laws of science and nature, which greatly informed his work as a painter, sculptor, inventor and draftsmen. Da Vinci has been called a genius and the archetypal Renaissance man. His talents inarguably extendedfar beyond his artistic works. Like many leaders of Renaissance humanism, he did not see a divide between science and art.

Hello, my name is Mr. Hudson and I want to welcome you to another year at E. E. Jeter K-8 School. For my new parents I would like to take a moment and introduce myself to you by saying that I look forward to giving each of your children the art education they deserve. Your child will learn through the years here at Jeter the importance of art in our day to day lives, the fundamentals of art and the principles of design as well as some of the fun stuff. I look forward to meeting you and educating your child about the wonders of art and creativity.
It is with great admiration for this institution of learning that I have prepared another year of rigorous and thought provoking lessons for your student. We in the fine arts department look forward to collaborating with your student on this years school displays, Fine Arts clubs, and programs.
