18-Year-Old Creates Surreal Artworks to Express Emotions
this picture is surreal because it is showing a teen loosing pieces from his face. This shows that he is either dying or falling apart. I choose this picture because it is the most satisfying and surreal one i could find. - Jorge Figueroa Block D.
"9 or 12 views of an object" - vary by level/class. Emphasizes multiple viewpoints, looking closely, + life. Kids usually only see a couple of views of a small object unless this way of "seeing" if stressed. Opens the door for talking about cropping, image selection, repetition, variation, pushing past "1st idea" in compositional development, etc. I've even done an "extension" where students pick favorite view to blow up and do in color with more "feeling" and less detail (and less time).
