This free lesson from smARTer Lessons focuses on challenging students to create a painting in a Surrealist style. Beginning with collage, students build a composition that includes a personal narrative. Next, students practice under painting techniques, and finally, use their collage as the subject matter for a finished acrylic painting. The lesson has enough information to understand the scope of the project, but has left room for you to personalize it to your program. Key aspects include: Surrealism, collage, under painting, composition, art history, personal voice, narrative.
