Surrealism, cont. December 21, 2013

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 4:31 pm

The 5th graders have finally finished their surrealism watercolor stories! We discussed many of Salvador Dali’s paintings, and guessed how he came up with some of his ideas.  They created silly sentences using words picked from a cup.  For example, what sentence could you write using the words ‘bunny’, ‘rainbow’, ‘sad’, and ‘jump’?  While painting, students had to incorporate 7 different watercolor techniques: crayon resist, wet on wet, wet on dry, dry brushing, salt, rubbing alcohol, and light/medium/dark values.  The results are great!  Watch out for these paintings and stories in the spring Morse School Art Show…
