Michelangelo and Seurat

Mrs. Euler teaches the lesson...
And the students get to practice feeling like Michelangelo!
This month, 3rd through 6th grade students learned about two very well-known artists, Michelangelo and Georges Seurat. The students learned about Michelangelo and his painting of the Sistine Chapel ceiling and also learned about pointillism (painting with tiny dots) while studying the painting Bathers at Asnières (1884) by Seurat. Mrs. Euler taught the art lesson for the combined grades, and then the students practiced  the skills used by these two artists by trying to illustrate their favorite Bible story while lying on their back and by illustrating their favorite leisure activity by using tiny little dots.
