Michelangelo

Time to study a bit of 3 dimensional art!

The renaissance is full of amazing artists, and Michelangelo is recognized as one of the finest.  His skills with painting, sculpture and architecture are world renown.

Michelangelo di Ludovico Buonarroti Simoni
1475 - 1564
Florence



In preparation for this week's class, please study the above image taken of Michelangelo's Pieta from St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican (1498-1499).  Click here for a larger image.

We will be creating our own sculptures this week!  Please bring to class:

    • Sculpy III - 2 oz per child, Pewter - 1 per student  (if you can't access this exact product or color, please come to class anyway.  Playdough, model magic, or any other sculpting medium can be substituted.)


You won't believe the fun surprise I have for you at our closing event!  I'll let you know exactly what I have planned on Friday.

See you at 6:30 on the 19th!
