In our “Making Art Inspired by Great Artists” CREST Enrichment class,
students are inspired by the Surealist Artist Salvador Dalí!
Students in grades TK- 5th learned about Surrealism, and how to use perspective, scale, horizon lines and vanishing points to show space and distance!
They drew out their horizon lines, set their vanishing points, added their roads,
and developed their compositions through drawing and collage techniques using images cut from repurposed magazines.
They created fantastical landscapes in which perspective can be clearly seen.
Despite having to wear face masks throughout, students inspired themselves and each other.
Students blended techniques of representation and fantasy through use of scale, image, space and color
to create fantastical, imaginative and whimsical Surrealistic works which hopefully, will stand the test of time, and reinforce their learning.
