Please note before reading, that while I am teaching my kids, I am also human and may make grammatical errors in my writing. When I blog, I like to write as if I’m explaining in a conversational manner. I sometimes write quickly, sometimes squeezing time in between lessons, or among screaming children in my ear. I'm okay if you silently correct my grammar, but do it silently. This is the age of the internet where you will see many errors on social media.

Michelangelo Style Art
Well - this picture below is exactly what it looks like! We painted like Michelangelo. We had a lesson on how he painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. We talked about the famous painting of The Creation of Adam. I had the girls paint a different portrait of the Ishtar Gate of Babylon because we had just learned about that from our Mystery of History lesson. They said their backs hurt, so I gave them pillows to lay on the floor. After they were done, they were glad they did it - even though their neck was hurting from looking back so much. I then asked how they thought Michelangelo must have felt having to paint SO much?? I think they got a sense of what he felt.
