We spent our short week as Michelangelo.
We read that he created his paintings on walls, and painted a famous ceiling.
We laid on our backs and imagined what it might be like to paint a ceiling. What would we paint?
Aaron: The sky.
Kian: A big castle.
To experience painting upside down, we used a table as our ceiling.
Our playhouse is being transformed into the Sistine Chapel.
Michelangelo was a painter and a sculptor.We looked at some of his sculptures, and then created our own.
Morah Katie: Efraim what are you sculpting?
Efraim: A mama and baby.
Morah Katie: Is the clay soft or hard?
Tori: It is soft and hard.
Morah Katie: Can you imagine using hammers and chisels to break pieces of stone of large rocks?
Noah: That would be a lot of work.
