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.
