What Are They Doing???

Our 5th graders have a new found appreciation for Michaelangelo, since we have studied his most famous fresco painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. After looking at slides, each student is getting a feel for what it would be like to paint on a ceiling. We taped paper on the underside of the art tables and students tried to create their own frescos laying on the carpet squares on the floor.
