ArtVentures...At Home

Surrealist Scene

In this project, you'll create a surrealist scene inspired by Salvador Dalí's Mad Tristan! Collage together pictures of animals, landscapes and more to create a dream-like world filled with unusual creatures and other imaginary elements, like the example collage, created by DAI Museum Educator Matthew Burgy.
