My middle daughter is a senior in high school with only days left in her high school career. Graduation is next week.
For her German 4 class, she was given the option of taking the final exam, or doing a copy of a painting by a German artist - on a school classroom ceiling tile. She opted to do the artwork.
Thankfully, she was given a ceiling tile to bring home, so no, she didn't have to hang Michelangelo-style in her German classroom all week.
Here is a photo of the original by Carl Spitzweg:

Pretty cool, huh? My mom is very artistic, but the gene definitely skipped a generation and landed on my daughter. Me? I'd have taken the final.
