A Study of Surrealism
:  Students create a Surrealist composition in the style of the Surrealist artists Rene Margaritte and Salvador Dali.  They design an out of this world composition that tells an interesting, wild story.  They color their composition with a  colored chalk background and oil pastels.

The Art of Cartooning:  This project contains two parts.  first, the students create their own cartoon character and draw it onto white paper.  They then make their character the main subject of a six frame cartoon strip.  The project is completed by outlining both of the drawings with black India Ink using a drawing pen.  The ink line drawing is then colored with a watercolor wash technique.
