November 10, 2017 • After School Workshop

We’ve been mixing and matching and not matching and throwing the unexpected together this week, because we’ve been talking about surrealism.

When we’re teaching about different art movements, one thing that we like to highlight is the versatility of media to express the movement. Our teachers present the concepts of the movement, in this case atypical and/or impossible qualities to images, objects or stories, and the students interpret the style through painting, drawing, writing, sculpture… the list could be endless.

Inspiration for our surrealist work came from dreams, from stories and other surrealistic artists.
