In art class, Otisville 5th graders got to experience what it must have been like for the artist MICHELANGELO Buonarroti (1457-1504) to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican in Rome.  Working in very uncomfortable positions, it took him four years to create one of the most beautiful paintings in the history of art.  The Arts are an integral part of children's education and provides opportunities to document our humanity for future generations.
