Dali’s Elephants and Surrealism with 2nd Grade

Second graders explored some of the works by Surrealist painter, Salvador Dali.  Recognized by his extremely long, unusual mustache, Dali is considered the father of the style of Surrealism.

Developed in the 20th century, Surrealism focuses on dreams, fantasy or chance effects; subject matter is highly unlikely or unexpected.
