Hispanic Heritage Month: Salvador Dali

During the month of September 15-October 15, 3rd grade Spanish students have been looking at famous Hispanic/Latino artists in recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month. We particularly learned about Spanish painter and surrealist Salvador Dali and analyzed repeating themes in his work. We looked at the juxtaposition of objects and metamorphosis of animals and creatures. Then with the help of Mr. Royston we used acrylic paint to make a background for our work. Then we dropped  bits of alcohol to spread the paint out in a dream like way. Next we cut out pictures from magazines to create juxtaposition of two objects that do not normally go together and pasted them on. The students have done a great job and are excited about the display!      -Ms. Shourds, K-8 Spanish Teacher
