Historical, Culturally Diverse, Standards-Based Art Lessons to Inspire Young Artists

About the Artist

Michelangelo (1475-1564)
Michelangelo Buonarroti was a Renaissance genius.  His paintings, sculptures, and architecture are explored and admired as the children learned about his life and art.  In their classroom art activity, the children focus on his architectural forms to create a facade in “marble.”
