We will soon be working on our Surrealist Drawings!
This project is intended to help you: - Come up with a variety of different ideas for art challenges presented in class - Generate multiple ideas/images for art making from personally relevant/meaningful sources, like feelings, memories, imagination, observations, associations, learning in other subject areas, cultural traditions, personal responses to current events, social and environmental issues, experiences with other artists’ art works, etc. - Gather visual information (personal photos, found visuals, artists’ works, etc.) to extend ideas. - Observe carefully while drawing from life / images, pays attention to detail - Draw people, objects and places with accurate proportions - Understand the difference between realistic, expressive, and abstract ways of representing - Finish and refine work until it looks complete and ready to display - Understand ways that contemporary art reflects peoples’ views, opinions, and experiences - Understand how artists are influenced by their environments
Remember that surrealism may: - use oddity, humour or wit - use the element of surprise - combine unusual things into one situation
- include realistic elements (real things/people/places etc.)
but as a whole, does not seem like a realistic situation
