It’s March 6, and the artist Michelangelo was born on this date in 1475. Michelangelo sculpted David, which is in Florence, Italy, and the Pieta, which is at the Vatican in Rome. He also painted the walls and ceiling of the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican and is a true Renaissance man of many artistic talents. If you have artistic flair or interest in learning more about art history, consider taking one or more of our fine arts courses. They’d be great electives for your high school diploma program or they may be taken individually for credit recovery or homeschool enrichment. We can’t promise you that you will become the next Michelangelo and create works of art that have fascinated people from all over the world for more than 500 years (though that would be nice), but we can promise you that you will learn a lot and receive excellent service from a leading distance education high school.
