DARIEN, Conn. The students in the 3-year-old classes at Methodist Family Center Preschool got in touch with their inner Renaissance painter as part of the literacy program. The kids created their own Michelangelo masterpieces while lying on their back, just as he did when painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
The students have been learning about famous artists by reading stories and doing art projects based on their works. Other artists that the kids have studied include Vincent Van Gogh, Jackson Pollock and Paul Klee.
