Yes. We do magazine photo collage. It bypasses the gap between their desire to draw 'realistically' and what they're realistically able to draw, and surrealism lets us explore 'forced context'. Specifically, we use a perspective grid to create 'surrealist dreamscapes'--coloring checkerboard patterns on the grid, cutting out windows, and using overlapping/scale to create 'trick rooms'. The lesson comes originally from School Arts or Arts and Activities.
