Two-Day Workshop

What is surrealism? Have you ever wondered how surrealistic artists come up with their ideas and techniques for creating those unreal, imaginative images that seem to bring you into their dreamlike worlds? This is a two part workshop where we will discuss, observe and finally create our own surrealistic images. In Part 1 (Saturday) we’ll take a look at both classical (Dali) and contemporary surrealism and discuss the thought process going on in the artist’s mind. Where do they find their inspiration? We’ll set up a folder with elements we could use in our composites. In Part 2 (Sunday) we will focus on the nuts and bolts of developing our composites, with emphasis on blending images, light, scale, texture and story.
