Art History Month #7: Michelangelo

This month we studied Michelangelo

Week 1:

We read the book:


Michelangelo
by Mike Venzia


For this project, he drew part of the Sistene Chapel depicting where God gave Adam life.


Then I put it on the underside of our piano bench and had him paint it.


Finished product!


Week 2:

We read the book:


Michelangelo Buonarroti
by Catherine Nichols

For this project, I had him carve out of soap.  He chose a fish and I gave him some ceramic tools.





Week 3:

We read the book:


Michelangelo
by Joanne Mattern

This weeks art project involved plaster of Paris!!



First, he spread it flat on a piece of cardboard.



After letting it dry, he drew a picture and then painted it.



Finished project!!





Week 4:

We read the book:



Michelangelo
by Shelly Sateren


For this weeks project he carved a man's face out of clay!







Blessings!!
