Characteristics of Surrealism
  • Bizarre world of dreams, memories and feelings
  • Laws of nature are reversed
  • Comes from the unconscious
Conscious: Knowing and perceiving. When you're fully aware when doing stuff
Unconscious: Not conscious. Un-aware of surroundings. Holds your thought and feelings. 

DIRECTIONS: You may print images from the computer to cut and paste, but you must also use color pencils to draw. You must include 1 or 2 of these Art Words in your picture. 
Juxtaposition: Joining two images in an impossible combination. (A rock sitting on top of a fragile flower) 
Transformation: The act of changing in form or shape or appearance. Turning something familiar to unusual or strange. 
Dislocation: Placing an object in unusual or unfamiliar surroundings. (a train coming out of a fireplace) 
Altered Scale: Changing an object's usual size. (An enormous apple next to a man). 
Translucent or Transparent: Making objects transparent that are not usually transparent. 
Levitation: Floating objects that don’t normally float. Defying gravity. (Islands floating in the air).
