Course Details
Course Description:

The marvelous art movement in Paris from 1924 to 1941 is known as Surrealism. This movement is highlighted by a group avant-garde writers, artists, and filmmakers. Surrealism was started by artist and poet Andre Breton with his Surrealism Manifesto to amazing illusion artist Salvador Dali (1904-1989), and film-maker Luis BuÃuel (1900-1983) along with many other creative and notable artists, authors and film-makers. The movement used dream-like imagery and Freudian dream symbolism to challenge the traditional function of art and reality. This course will explore famous works from this time period and challenge teachers to integrate surreal topics into their classroom curriculum planning. Can topics in writing, art and film be a mirror into our psyche? Are our dreams a pathway to our subconscious thoughts?
