5th grade Surrealism
5th graders studied the art movement “Surrealism”. We looked at famous Surrealists including Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte and Arcimboldo Giuseppe. It is Giusuppe’s artwork that we focused on the most. He created strange and magnificent portraits of people using fruits, vegetables, animals and many other things. Even though his artwork was surreal, it also featured accurate human facial proportions. We traced silhouettes or our heads onto cardstock and created these surreal faces using magazines, maps and newspapers in our surreal collages.
