Tips and Tricks

The Project:

Often, new ideas and ways of seeing things change our lives and the way we think. This is what happened when a psychotherapist named Sigmund Freud began listening to people tell him of their dreams. He thought that there were things in peoplesí memories and thoughts that they were not aware of. These invisible thoughts he called the subconscious and the surrealists tried to paint ideas from theirs. In this project we will try to understand the paintings of the surrealists though our own art work. We will also learn how to create the illusion of space in our work through the use of two-point perspective while we practice our use of color and techniques used with the colored pencil.
