This workshop will use techniques and ideas inspired by Surrealist games and methods of art making. The Surrealist artists were interested in accessing their inner self or their subconscious to realize new ways of expressing ideas that were both personal and political. You will explore various methods used by the Surrealists such as automatic drawing, photomontage, collage and decalcomania (a blotting process whereby paint is squeezed between two surfaces to create a mirror image.). You will create an accordion fold journal to record all the explorations and discoveries of the day. Suitable for beginners.
