         My name is Samantha Rodriguez. I am in 6th grade. I go to Holman Middle School.

          I chose Michelangelo because he is a big inspiration to my art life. When I look at his artwork, I feel like I can make amazing pieces of artwork like he does! Michelangelo is a great artist, and I feel like I can make amazing things like he does someday.




          Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was born March 6, 1475 in Caprese Michelangelo,Italy. A village in Florentine Territory. Where his was the resident magistrate. ( a resident magistrate is certain parts of the world that is being governed by the British.)After a few weeks from Michelangelo's Birth. His family returned to Florence. In the year 1488, he was apprenticed by Domenico Ghirlandaio for three years. Later, Michelangelo tried to suppress. He tried to make it seem he never had ordinary workshop training. Then, he was introduced to fine arts. He had no connection with painting.

            Introduction To Art

          Michelangelo never really found interest in school. He thought it was more boring than watching church painters ( people who paint at churches) and drawing what he saw. Though he did go to grammar school. Michelangelo had a friend in grammar school, Francesco Granacci. Francesco introduced a famous painter to Michelangelo. The painter's name was Domenico Ghirlandaio. As soon as Michelangelo's father realized early on that his son had no interest in the family business. So he agreed that he can be apprenticed. When Michelangelo was 13, he went to work at the Fashionable Florentine Painters workshop. When Michelangelo got there, He was exposed to the Fresco Technique.

      Beginning Of A Masterpiece


          Michelangelo was an artist. He did poetry, architecture, painting, and sculpting. He was one of the greatest Italian Renaissance artist ever. The Italian Renaissance was known for it's creative spark. They had HUGE strides in inventing, science, politics, and mostly art. Michelangelo led many people. Michelangelo was short, he had wide shoulders, and mostly a broken nose. He could concentrate very well and lots of energy for the task at hand. He only ate a little bread while working. He would sleep next or close to his artwork until it was finished. He would wear the same clothing until he was done. He loved his friends and family very much. He did artwork for them but, they never really thanked them. Some people looked up to him. Some people thought he was very cruel, with a cold heart. He never got married.
