From Reality to Dreams: Making Surreal Paintings (Ages 12-14)
Surrealism literally means "super-reality." Surrealist artwork is based on reality but has been altered to look or feel unreal. We'll learn how to take photographs and turn them into collages to make surrealist artwork. Then we'll use those digital collages as inspiration for paintings we'll create depicting fantastic things!
- Students may go outside in the neighborhood for walks.

About the Instructor
Grace Mae Huddleston
Hello! I am an artist and educator. My teaching centers around empowering teens and adults of all skill levels to deepen their connection to art making. I have taught in community centers, schools, and universities. My teaching emphasizes technical skill building and I love it when my students put stories, personality, and deeper meaning into their creations. I primarily teach all things 2D from drawing to painting to mixed media but also have experience with textiles and performance art! In my own art practice, I create 2D works that work with creative writing to build fantastical worlds and tell stories.
