Writing- Research the technique of ‘cut up’ writing. What is it? Feedback findings to the group. Take part in creating a family ‘cut up’ text by picking random words out of a hat. Discuss how they could be arranged either to make sense or for surreal effect. Play with the arrangement of words until you are happy with end result.

Writing- Practice and write our poems about your object. Remember to use show not tell, what other poetic techniques could you use?

 

Once you have written it up, use newspaper/ magazine clipping to bring your poem to life using cut ups. Consider how poems could be presented possibly by word processing, adding photographs and amending layout. Use different font styles and sizes to make particular words and phrases stand out.

Topic

Look closely at a range of Surrealist art, discussing initial reactions and making notes about things that interest them in a sketchbook or journal.

Experiment with the possibilities of ‘automatic drawing’, as practised by the Surrealists, working outdoors on large canvasses to create patterns and lines using a range of drawing media. Use computer graphic software to explore automatic drawing. Be inspired by the work of Joan Miró, using colour blocks to create pictures using initial drawing work.

In class, we will be looking at SRE. This could be an opportunity for you to talk to parents about any questions you have.  At home, look at the link below at different aspects of PSHE. Pick 3 that relate to you, go through the website and discuss with others what you have learnt or ask any questions.

Research the life and times of Salvador Dali. Discover how he began work as an artist, why he turned to Surrealism, his foray into film, the importance of his paintings and sculptures, and where he lived and died. Create a timeline of his life using facts and images found during your research, to bring it to life.

 

This week, we will continue to explore the work of Mary Wigman, one of the pioneers of Expressionist dance. Discuss why her work was revolutionary and how it was different from other dance of the time. Work in groups to create Expressionist dance sequences that portray a particular feeling or mood.
