Sistine Chapel

Have your students read this brief info sheet on Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel. In order to help your students begin to understand the magnitude of his work there, have them tape a sheet of white paper to the underside of their desk. Instruct them to draw a detailed picture of different people. Have books available in which your students can view pictures of Michelangelo's paintings on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel after they have had a chance to draw their own. This would begin a great discussion on the role of art in society.
