For this project, the first grade students learned about Surrealism. We discussed the style and talked about the characteristics that set it apart from other kinds of art. We began by drawing the bodies of imaginary birds. Then, we gave them REALLY long legs. For the sky, we talk about value and how we can create a sunset effect by using three different values of the same color. We finished the project by paintings our birds.
