This middle school project is packed with objectives. To begin, we studied the characteristics of Surrealism. Then we proceeded to learn the tricks to creating depth in a landscape and volume using shading. They were captivated by the idea of creating a Surrealist landscape as it let their imaginations soar. Many were extremely proud of their shading techniques and their ability to bring volume to the page.
