Michelangelo Ceiling Painting

As part of our European Art series, we looked at the work of the famous Italian artist Michelangelo! We learned about his work on the ceiling of the Sistine chapel and the detail that he used in his paintings, even though he painted them lying down! We had the chance to experience what it must have been like for Michelangelo today. We stuck paper underneath our desks and used pastels to recreate the dusty paint look of Michelangelo’s art. We found it hard but we tried our best and our drawings were good considering how we had created them! We enjoyed learning about Michelangelo’s life and getting to try out the techniques of a famous artist.
