Dali's project

Hi children.

I know that this time talking about Salvador Dalí has been quite difficult because of the distance.


The main objectives were that you became familiar with the author and his artwork.


We are going to do a project and it's going to be the last one about it.


You will reproduce one of his paintings with the technique of Collage.


You'll choose one painting (one that I'll give to you) and then, three or four techniques of collage (not only one).


Then you'll take a photo and send it plus an explanation of the work you have done.(Elige una pintura de Dalí y usa entre 3 o 4 técnicas de collage diferentes)

I'm going to give the techniques and the paintings (you can choose among the examples I'll give you. You can copy the painting into your paper or just, use a photocopy).Os dejo debajo un enlace a los dibujos de Dalí.

Let's talk about the techniques. There are different types of collage, here you have the ones I want you to use. Please read and think...

1st. Paper/Magazine/cardboard Collage
These collages are made from random things in magazines. They can be cut out or ripped and then stuck onto a common surface. Magazines can be replaced with newspapers, cardboard, colour papers... to give a different feel and look.


2nd. Fabric Collage
Fabric collage are very different to the first I talked about, because this one doesn't involve pictures already on the material, instead, you create the picture with the fabric. The fabric can be cut into many shapes and stuck down on a surface.

3rd. Dimensional Collage
3D Collage art is placing 3D items on a surface and creating something new. Some items that can be used are: rocks, beads, coins, buttons, sticks, new and old objects. If you want you can keep it as all natural items and do a sustainability project. 

4th. Mosaic

Mosaic is a type of collage. Most people know of tiled mosaic art, however there are a few different types. Others include paper, marble, stone and more. You can find these types of collage in cathedrals, churches and temples.

Dream-like Landscape

The word DREAM-LIKE is related with the dreams and how you could represent them in reality.
So, a Dream-Like Landscape would have objects, people...that could appear in a dream but there are not real, they are surreal. More realist than we used to know.

The next artwork is for you to plan a Surreal Landscape. The landscape is going to be the setting of a surreal story (the beginning, the middle or the end of the story. It is up to you).

I will give you a Surreal Sketch and you'll have to complete it and colour it.
(The colour is as important as the drawings).

So, the tasks for you are:

1st. Read the following text, look at the painting and think .

Can you see the Spanish landscape in the background? The hand holding the egg mirrors the man sitting in the water. There are a lot of odd things going on in the background that don't seem to be connected. What else can you see?

2nd. Click and watch some examples.


3rd. Download the Surreal Sketch, complete it and colour it (you can use every technique for colouring) (If you haven't any printer, draw it...don't worry about printing, it's not necessary).

4th. Take a picture and Send it to me by email. Write in the subject: Name, surname, class and SURREAL LANDSCAPE.

Deadline (fecha tope de entrega): 19th May
I'm going to give you time to do it (so do it very well...)

Today I have a proposal for you to do.
You're going to create your own surreal painting.
With the help of an activity which will direct you step by step.

1st. Read the "Draw a Surreal Creature". Click here

2nd. Watch the pictures (worksheets) attached. 

3rd. TO Print or NOT to PRINT (that's a difficult question...) You don't need to print because you can do on your own. You can draw your own little pictures. Or print the ones given and cut them off.
(It's up to you).

4th. NOW...CREATE, CREATE, CREATE...
Create your own creature, use a sheet of paper or a sheet from your sketchbook.
Then take a picture or a photo and sent it to me by email

Write your name, surname, the class and ARTS CLASS in the subject of the email.

As we started last week with information of Dalí, I recommend you to watch the next video in which you will see some interesting facts that perhaps explain why Dali saw the reality quite different from us.

Dali had not a normal childhood. When he grew up his aims in life were quite childish and immature, but this eccentric vision of life left us a huge and priceless production of artwork.

Salvador Dalí made paintings, sculptures and films about the dreams he had. He painted melting clocks and floating eyes, clouds that look like faces and rocks that look like bodies. 

Dalí was involved with surrealism. This was an art movement where painters made dream-like scenes and showed situations that would be bizarre or impossible in real life.


Let's talk about SURREALISM!

What has a lobster got in common with a telephone? Find out here!

YOUR TASK today is play this SURREALIST QUIZZ just to find out more info about the movement.


I hope you have enjoyed the Arts class today.


See you next Wednesday. Prepare your brain cause we will start producing art!

Hi guys!

For the next weeks we will work about a Spanish artist: Salvador Dalí. Here you have a text about him:

"Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad". Salvador Dalí

DALÍ was a famous and well-known artist. He was born in Figueres, Spain, in 1904. He died in 1989, in the same town. During his life he studied, worked and produced lots of artworks.

Salvador Dali was involved in a huge variety of art forms, but surrealism is considered his true forte. Ironically though, he was kicked out of the group of Surrealists in the 1930s, to which he haughtily responded: “I myself am surrealism”.

Surrealist art portrays various unrelated elements put together in any order, depending upon the artist’s view. You’ve probably come across one of the most iconic pieces of surrealist art which shows ‘melting watches’ – Dali’s most famous work, ‘The Persistence of Memory’.

Dali’s work wasn’t just an assortment of random objects – they often had deep religious and political underlying themes. He was also drawn to mathematics and quantum physics and many pieces of his work reflect this fascination as well. But most of all, Dali’s work had no boundaries – it conformed to nothing and could be anything.

That is why Dali is a great inspiration for you, kids, especially the ones who want to color outside the lines!

And here you have a video with more information:

I hope now you know more about Dalí. We will continue working on it.

Have a good week.
