Another way to integrate Art History into your lesson plans. This project looks specifically at the paintings of the Sistine Chapel. There is no need to get a close up picture for the students because of the nudity that is included in the painting. Discuss what painting on a ceiling must be like.
Show images from far away, giving the entire room and perspective. Then, for the project, tell them that they will be painting like Michangelo. Already have a sheet of paper taped under the tables for each student in the class. Give the students markers or crayons rather than paint. Have the students lay on their backs on the floor to create their own masterpiece.
