The goal of this unit is for students to practice many color and painting techniques while also learning about the ideas behind surrealistic painters. The students will learn about basic color mixing, how to recreate colors found in source images and make as close to a photo realistic image as possible. The student then will learn about Salvador Dali and the work of other surrealistic painters. For the final assessment the student will create a surrealistic painting where the base image is realistic but there is some element or visual image that is 'out of place' in the composition.
