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, tranform, 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
one
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 own spin on surrealism using a No. 2 pencil.
