Course Detail: SURREALISM - Surrealism: Exquisite Corpse and Decalcomania!
Artwork by Hans Bellmer, L'Embryon Rouge (Red Embryo), 1949
Course Description
In this 2 ½ hour class, students will create up to four 8x10" paintings by delving into the bizarre and learning techniques of surrealist masters such as Max Ernst, Salvador Dali, and Oscar Dominguez. Decalcomania comes from the French word Décalquer, meaning "to transfer". This is where the word "decal" comes from, such as a wall decal, car decal, etc. because we are transferring an image from one surface to another. Surrealist artists used this technique during the 1930's to create works of art by applying paint to one surface and pressing another piece of paper onto it, transferring images, and creating unique textures.

Participants will need to bring a hair (blow) dryer.
