Fourth Grade Surrealist Collage

These collages are serious business. Unlike our other works of art where you brain storm for ideas first, this work has the artists being image fed, then creating the work.  The Artists had to look through magazines to find images that were very normal and everyday. They could not use anything illustrated, strange, scale-changed or juxtaposed. Then after collecting the images and a background the artists rearranged the images to be very surrealistic. The main goal was to have everyday images re-arranged in a very dreamlike fashion. There was also to be interaction of the subjects on the artworks. The students had to cut very close to the image to create a seamless image. A lot of work indeed. This work was created after much study of the Dada and Surrealist art movements.
