Surrealism and Light
For our first weeks back , we have had a very busy schedule. In art, we looked at surrealism and in particular the artist Salvador Dali. Surrealism lies somewhere between the conscious and the subconscious. Somewhere in our dreams when everyday objects get turned on their heads. We looked at Dali’s ‘Persistence of Memory’ that displayed clocks that looked like they had melted. The children drew their own surrealist drawings. We had an ice-cream shell, a woman’s hair that turned into the sea with a boat and a mouth that has a road for its tongue.
Then we used magazines, collage and paint to create more surrealist images. Can you find ‘A Baby’s Day Out’, ‘Up, up and away!’ ‘Deliciously Deceptive’, ‘The Swan’ and ‘A Face’?
In science, we are exploring light. We investigated what direction light travels in?
We also explored light and shadow too but the flash on the camera disrupted those images!
