Surealism

We will be changing our project from a self portrait to the study of Surrealism.  If you were excited about completing a self portrait, you can do it, but just put a Surreal twist on it.   Surrealism is a style of art that features a realistically drawn picture that looks possible, but is impossible.

Let’s look at a famous Surreal artist, Rene Magritte:

Today’s sketchbook assignment:

Take two magazine pictures and figure out how they can be combined in a way that looks possible, but is impossible.

You are welcome to use your iPad or Chromebook to aid in your image gathering process, however you are required to start you process with one or more magazine images.  Begin sketching your surreal idea in your sketch book.
