Junior High is continuing their timeline and we have arrived at SURREALISM!! We studied the artwork of Dali and Magritte. Students really enjoyed studying surreal artwork. We discussed what makes an artwork surreal. It is recognizable (unlike abstract) but doesn't make sense (dream-like). Next, I introduced the assignment. Students were to make a surrealist collage!! Before we started, I went through Arizona Highway magazines to collect large landscape pictures to use as the background for the collage. Students picked one that they liked. Then they searched through magazines to create a surreal landscape!! I absolutely love the way these turned out!!
