Week 4: Are You Surreal?

Leave a comment

Time to dig out your dream journal and visualize that wacky wonderland as we take a dip into Surrealism.  Taking inspiration from René Magritte’s cheeky skewed representational scenes and Salvador Dali’s wild dreamscapes and creatures, paint and collage your way through this exercise.  We suggest painting the background first and then adding your surreal elements from magazines, books, found objects, or other ephemera.  Don’t over think this workout- let your subconscious guide you.  Yes, we are surreal.  Have fun!

This week at Wet Paint, stock up on your favorite Mod Podge collage adhesive and sealant- they are all 10% off MSRP! These are water-based, so keep that in mind if glueing over a water-soluble painted background.

These Weekly Workouts will be posted as Events in our Facebook Group, click here to join!
