Use this Powerpoint from Campbell's Classroom to introduce a lesson on Surrealism in your digital photography class. This Powerpoint not only introduces Surrealism to the student, it outlines an entire month's worth of projects on Surrealism in photography. You can break it up and use it however you wish or change the lessons as you see fit. I have students do a Powerpoint on Surrealism, as well as take four different photos which they manipulate in Photoshop, using techniques they have previously learned.
Could be used in a beginning or an advanced photography class. You could also go even more in depth and introduce Surrealism in painting, literature and film if you so desire. This is a great springboard for a lot of different activities.
