ARTS CLASS ---- Wednesday 5th May --- DALI's SURREALISM

As we started last Wednesday 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.

Dalí 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!
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!

ARTS CLASS -- Wednesday 5th May

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

DALI 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 (expelled) of the group of Surrealists in the 1930s, to which he arrogantly responded: “I myself am surrealism”. (It was totally true)

Surrealist art portrays various unrelated elements put together in any order, depending upon the artist’s view.
 You’ve probably known 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 (limits) – 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!

For today I think it is enough, pupils.
Have a nice and Super Realistic Day!!
