This week St Marks primary school were investigating some interesting and familiar techniques invented by Surrealist artists to create some very bizarre creatures and scenes! The children practised 3 techniques invented by artists from the Surrealist movement:
1 - PVA used as an adhesive for the layers of sand that were added.
2 - A random inked pattern duplicated to leave a symetrical design.
And Frottage (rubbing)
3 - Rubbing over textured surfaces creating basic shapes.
