Surrealism Collage


Research Surrealism and then create a collage. What does the artwork look like?  Why ways it created?  Who were the major artists?


This project can be done on the computer or by collaging magazines and photos. Combine at least 3 different images including an overall background image. The images should be incongruent but not totally random.


If you are using a magazine: Make sure they are attached well with a glue stick and the images are cut out well.


Computer: The images should be layer carefully and removed from their background smoothly. Final works can be printed or posted on Google Classroom.


Size: A4

Just about every example is from a former student of mine.  Many thanks to them for all of their time and dedication.
