This week we were looking at one of the greatest artists to have ever lived - sculptor, painter and architect - Michelangelo.
As part of our Art History - we learned about his life and his work from the Statue of David to the world famous frescoes on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo spent 4 years painting the ceiling using custom scaffolding 58 feet above the floor! After these 4 back-breaking years, he famously said "I felt as old and as weary as Jeremiah. I was only 37, yet friends did not recognise the old man I had become.”
To get a sense of what it was like for him, we decided to try it for ourselves. We stuck our pages to the bottom of our desks, got on the floor, lay on our backs and created our own masterpieces!
Take a look at how we got on !
