Michelangelo Buonarroti--known simply as Michelangelo--has been called the greatest artist who has ever lived. His impressive masterpieces astonished his contemporaries and remain some of today's most famous artworks. Young readers will come to know Michelangelo the man as well as the artistic giant, following his life from his childhood in rural Italy to his emergence as a rather egotistical teenager to a humble and caring old man. They'll learn that he did exhausting, back-breaking labor to create his art yet worked well, even with humor, with others in the stone quarry and in his workshop. Michelangelo for Kids offers an in-depth look at his life, ideas, and accomplishments, while providing a fascinating view of the Italian Renaissance and how it shaped and affected his work. 

Budding artists will come to appreciate Michelangelo's techniques and understand exactly what made his work so great. Twenty-one creative, fun, hands-on activities illuminate Michelangelo's various artistic mediums as well as the era in which he lived. Kids can: make homemade paint, learn the cross-hatching technique used by Michelangelo, make an antique statue, build a model fortification, compose a Renaissance-style poem, and much more.
