Campbellsville Middle School art students are learning about surrealism.
In Jo Ann Harris’s class, students learned about surrealist artist Rene Magritte, who is known for creating thought-provoking images.
Magritte’s work depicted ordinary objects in an unusual context.
To create their own work in Magritte’s style, students played a game to determine which objects they would draw.
Students were given a game board with a dice. When they rolled, their number determined the object they drew in the background, which item was the “surreal” image and which images were small, large and medium.
Harris’s students created their images by drawing first and using oil pastels to add color.
