Surranimals with Phillip Martin
Lesson Plan

When I teach a project called "ISMs", one of the favorite styles of art has always been Surrealism. So, I'm not sure why it took me so long to finally have a project that is totally devoted to this style. It is so long in coming and such a spectacular lesson.

After selecting an animal, it is redrawn totally and completely out of pencils. No, I don't mean it is drawn with pencils. Each feather, hoof, horn, beak and every other part of the animal is a pencil. As strange as it may sound, it is highly motivations and extremely successful.

If animals don't do it for you -- and I don't know how that could be possible -- I guess you could alway have "Surrobjects".
