Just like Mike

Today, in art class, the students learned about Michelangelo and his famous painting in the Sistine Chapel. We discussed the different items that he included in his painting and while his finished product was beautiful, it was a great deal of work. The students, on the other hand, felt that it would be tremendous fun to paint on a ceiling! So Mrs. Allan prepared the bottoms of all the tables and gave them the opportunity to “give it a whirl”.

Some of the students spent the entire class under the table working on their projects, while others decided quickly that drawing upside down was not for them. We had some concerns of aching necks and tired arms but ultimately beautiful artwork.

By the end of the class, the students had a pretty good idea how Michelangelo felt painting on that ceiling oh so many years ago.
