Paint Like Ike

Shortly before the D-Day invasion, Dwight D. Eisenhower outlined instructions for the most comprehensive effort in history by an army to fight a war while also trying to minimize the damage to cultural treasures and monuments. Just after World War II, Ike was introduced to the hobby of painting and enjoyed it thought the rest of his life. In addition to learning about this merge of art, history, and Eisenhower, students will "paint like Ike" and finish a painting Ike left incomplete upon his passing.

“The essence of leadership is to get others to do something because they think you want it done and because they know it is worth while doing.”

Dwight Eisenhower
