Art

This month we are studying
Surrealism. We have been analyzing and reproducing The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali. This piece of art has been rich fodder for conversation. Students provided their opinions of what some of the objects are and why. Students came up to the Smartboard, pointed to an object and stated, “I think this is a _ because . . .”.
We had a conversation about the mood of the painting. The painting evokes a somber mood due to its colours. We discussed how the mood would be altered by the use if warm or cool colours were used.
