Young Leonardo

Have you ever wondered what the great masters of the High Renaissance were like when they were young? Learn and explore through the eyes of one the world's greatest artists and thinkers: Leonardo da Vinci!

Meet Leonardo, a curious little boy whose comical adventures examine the inner and outer workings of the world around him. As an adult, Leonardo will produce some of the world's greatest masterpieces and usher in the Renaissance, but as a child, he’s simply precocious, brilliant, meddlesome, exasperating...and unbelievably entertaining.

Young Leonardo is a charming tale full of hysterical vignettes showcasing the budding imagination of one of history’s most brilliant thinkers.
