Dream-like visions where things are not what they seem... or, items are put together in a totally different relationship that what we know to be real (a surreal world).

Transcript of Surrealism

Surrealism is a cultural movement and artistic style that was founded in 1924 by André Breton.
Surrealism style uses visual imagery from the subconscious mind to create art without the intention of logical comprehension.

The Surrealist movement eventually spread across the globe, and has influenced artistic endeavors from painting and sculpture to pop music and film directing.

The greatest known Surrealist artist is the world famous Salvador Dali. Other famous surrealist include: Rene Magritte, Yves Tanguy, Joan Miro, etc. Your Assignment:

Pre-select a picture that is clear and uncluttered from a magazine.
Carefully cut it out and glue it on the paper.
Next, use imagination to draw a picture using the magazine picture in some way that is surprising, unexpected or impossible, keeping Surrealist Art as a template.

For example, the picture of a bowl of cereal glued to the paper may become the boat upon which a family of hand-drawn crayon-coloured mice sail across a strange ocean.

In addition, create a title or name for the drawing that is equally unexpected.
