"Happy Birthday, Michelango!" Storytime

Hello, Friends! Happy Friday to you! And, Happy (Belated) Birthday to Michelango, who turned 537 years old on Tuesday.

Today at Storytime, our young artists read several stories about creative art, and we learned about Michelangelo, painter of the Sistine Chapel. We were amazed that he could paint such beautiful pictures on the ceiling, and we were inspired to create art like Michelangelo. As we couldn't reach the ceiling of our library, we taped paper beneath folding chairs, and created these beautiful works of art while lying on our backs on the floor. Check us out:

We had so much fun! Parents/grandparents and caregivers did too, and many friends said they plan to replicate this art experience at home soon! I'm so glad you enjoyed this experience!

These are just a few of the many wonderful books on Art and Artists our library has to offer:
Our next storytime is Monday, March 12th at 11:30am; no registration required. See you here!

xoxo, Miss Katie
