Are you looking for a no-prep art unit on Surrealism? All the hard work has been done for you! This may be just what you need.
1. Art History Presentation on Surrealism: 19 slides
2. Surrealist Landscape Collage Tutorial: 9 slides
3. Two handouts about Surrealist art games
4. Two Description Sheets (which can be hung up next to the artworks or taped to the back of the art so the parents know what we studied.)
5. Project Checklist and Artist Statement
Best used with grades 3 and up! I have successfully done this project with 3rd grades as well as 7th graders. If you don't want to use the landscape collage lesson you can give the kids the choice to do one of the art games, a Surreal drawing or another Surreal artwork of their choice.
