Look at the way Dali and other surrealists depicted animals. Using one of Dali's works, "Space Elephant," for inspiration, young artists will create their own unique animal sculptures.

Students will be introduced to current artist book trends and resources like "Printed Matter." Students will be led through the process of how to create a 3D sphere in book form, then they'll discuss the narrative process and create a cover for the 3D book. For ages 7 and older.
