Year 3 & 4 Art

We were learning about Michelangelo as part of our Italian art topic.  The children learnt about the Sistine Chapel and how Michelangelo had be commissioned to create an elaborate fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. For five years, Michelangelo worked while hanging from a suspended scaffold as he painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.  The children then attempted to sketch an image of Michelangelo, recreating his working experience.
