Upside Down Painting!

This afternoon Lancelot Class have been learning all about the classical artist Michelangelo. We learnt all about how he painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel while laying on his back. We found out that it took him four years to complete the masterpiece and includes thousands of human figures paited in great detail.

We did some of our own upside down painting where we painted some pictures of mermaids (linked to our Myths and Legends Literacy topic). It wasn't as easy as we first thought but we all gave it a good go!
