Summer Art Camp 2021: Week 6

Salvador Dali; The Persistence of Memory

Surrealism · July 19-23

1917-1966, Europe Surrealism requires that one suspend all rational thoughts. Surrealism suggests a state of “beyond reality” and aimed to break free from the conscious, rational mind. Surrealist artists embraced the bizarre, strange, impossible. Surrealist artists conjured the unconscious mind and created dream-like scenes with symbolic meaning. This week, campers will produce works of art inspired by dreams and stories of strange happenings! Artists: Jean Arp, Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte, Max Ernst, Paul Klee, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso.
