Salvador Dali Elephants

I’m linking up with Mel from Frog Spot for her Tuesday Art Linky!

I love finding new art ideas and am excited to go back and check the blogs that linked up!



My art idea comes from learning about the artist Salvador Dali.

I saw Mrs.T’s First Grade Classes Dali Birds and loved them!

We learned about his life and painting style called Surrealism. We learned that he liked to paint things that were surreal and dreamlike. Very strange and weird things!

We analyzed some of his famous paintings and re-created Elephants in the style of Dali.

1. We read books about Dali and looked at his paintings and his style of Surrealism.

2. We looked at the aspects of Elephants and did a directed drawing of an Elephant.

3. We outlined our Elephants with black marker and coloured them with a gray crayon.

4. We choose a colour for the background and painted it with liquid watercolours.

They turned out beautiful! I love how old some of the elephants look. I also love the long legs which give it that surreal look!
