Pencil Surrealist Drawing

EQ: What makes Surrealism so Surreal?

TSWAT identify a piece of Surreal art.
TSWBAT analyze, evaluate, and interpret a Surrealist Art Piece.
TSWBAT modify, transform, scale, and distort a pencil to fit the contour of a selected image.

Scale: Changing an object’s scale, or relative size.
Levitation: Floating objects that don’t normally float
Juxtaposition: Joining two images together in 
impossible combinations
Dislocation: Taking an object form its usual environment and placing it in an unfamiliar
Transparency: Making objects transparent that are 
not usually transparent
Metamorphosis: Changing objects in unusual way
Natural Laws Reversed: The laws of nature are reversed, as in people walking dogs.
Repetition: An object repeated multiple times.

After learning about the Surrealist art movement, students used two of the key ideas of Surrealism (transformation and repetition) to create their spin on Surrealism using a No. 2 pencil.
