Girl at the Window, Salvador Dali, 1925
I came across this painting by surrealist artist, Salvador Dali, online a couple weeks ago in this blog post. This realistic painting of Dali's sister Ana Maria looking out a window inspired this art lesson to teach shallow and deep space. I began by first erasing the view in the window so that students could digitally replace it on the iPad in Brushes or Sketchbook Express with an image that creates deep or shallow space. Download the template below. Then I thought, why don't I just erase everything and let students become the viewer as well as choosing the view. This result would lend itself to a reflective writing piece to accompany their art. Download the template below.
