Dali Inspired Surrealist Animals


This project was inspired by the 1948 painting The Elephants by the Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dalí. I introduced my Grade 5 students to the work of Dali and we discussed his style- barren landscapes with a real sense of depth and space, highly realistic details, lots of random objects grouped together.


They sketched these in pencil first, then outlined in Sharpie 
and painted using watercolours.
