This is the third post in our famous artist series. In case you missed any, you can find them all at the link below. Studying artists and their works of art go along great with a Charlotte Mason style education, and you can also pair it up with history as well. Each week in this series we will be highlighting an artist, with free resources, printables and unit studies to give you an in-depth study. This week’s artist is Michelangelo.
Michaelangelo was another famous Italian Renaissance artist. He is great to study when you are studying this time period in history. He was a famous sculptor who is well know for his David statue, a painter, poet and architect. He is most known for his frescoe paintings on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
