Surrealist Object Lesson Plan - 8th Grade Ceramics

Looking at the Surrealist movement in art, students discovered the creative potential behind blending the worlds of dream & reality. They did this by combining objects that are not normally associated with one another to create surrealist objects. From this, students broke free from the “normal,” and embraced their inner dream worlds, creating objects that carry new meaning and question reality.

DESTINO: A collaboration between Walt Disney and the Spanish surrealist painter, Salvador Dalí. Students view this film as an introduction to Surrealism.
