Prep for the activity by taping a piece of paper to the bottom of students’ desks.
Introduce Michelangelo by giving students a brief biography and sharing a variety of his works.
Show students the Sistine Chapel. Answer any questions they have about how he created it.
Tell students that they will be creating upside down just as Michelangelo did.
Invite them to go under the table and draw.
When finished, meet with students again to talk about the process of creating upside down. Be sure to ask open-ended questions to encourage discussion.
Observe and record students as they are drawing. How well were they able to control the crayon or marker upside down? What did they share about Michelangelo and his art?
