FC: The Tale of Raphael By: Emily Ladd
1: Long ago, there lived a boy named Raphael. He was born March 1483, which was Good Friday. He was not royal; his family was neither poor nor rich. They were average people of the renaissance time living average lives in the small Italian City of Urbino. When Raphael was young. He took up an interest in the arts right away. When he was around three years old, his mother died. This made him grow very close to his father, Giovanni Santi. He loved to draw and soon his father began teaching him how to paint. He and his father loved painting together and that is how they spent most of their free time. When Raphael was only eight, his father passed away. This hit him very hard and he did not know what to do.

4: He went and lived with a family member and continued to paint for eight more years. When Raphael was sixteen, he went to be a student and assistant to a painter named Perugino. He learned a lot from his master and painting styles began to be very similar. Raphael was known to be an atheist, but he painted mostly religious paintings because that was what was accepted. After leaving his master, he became an apprentice to Andrea Del Verrocchio. He learned many new painting styles from this master, but genera;;y stcuk to his old painting styles.
5: Raphael was known for being a ladies man. He created paintings of the Madonna's, which was said to be one woman in many different scenarios and forms. This lovely young lady was said to be the woman that Raphael was in love with. She is seen many times in his other paintings that have to do with the idea of chivalry and knighthood.

8: Other than the Madonna's pictures, Raphael had many other famous art works. The School of Athens was and still is a very famous painting. This painting is so impressive because it was based on a time period two hundred years before Raphael was even born, so he was going off of pure knowledge from that time period for the entire picture. It it also interesting because even though he was not alive yet, he included many artists the renaissance period such as Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo in the painting. He also painted portraits of the higher class and royalty.
