This term, our Year 10 visual art students have been exploring ideas around the work of the surrealist painters. We have looked at how Freud’s ideas influenced this group of artist and about how they developed various techniques for ‘trapping’ unconscious, intuitive-thinking processes, as well as conscious decision-making. Below are some examples of the finished outcomes and here is a website the students have created as a group, that showcases the entire creative process and deeper investigations into the work of the surrealists.
