Surrealism Paintings

The Art I classes completed a study of the surrealist movement in art history, including an examination into the works of Salvador Dalí, by creating their own surrealist painting using watercolor paint. The students had to include five objects that would normally not be found in the same environment together and utilized the barren or void landscape that is often found in the works of Dalí and Giorgio di Chirico. The students also practiced the use of developing shadows based on a visible or non-visible light source, and incorporated the “rule-of-thirds” into their composition. Below are several examples from this year’s 1st and 7th hour Art I classes.
