Art Activities 8th-14th June

Salvador Dalí, Lobster Telephone

This week’s artwork is…

Salvador Dalí & Edward James

Lobster Telephone

Dalí’s Lobster Telephone is one of the most famous sculptures in the world. DalÍ was known as a Surrealist artist. Surrealism is an art movement from 1920s France.

It was made up of artists who used their imaginations to create dream-like (or sometimes nightmare-ish!) artworks. Lobster Telephone is a great example of how the Surrealists would transform everyday things into weird and wonderful (often very funny!) objects.

This week’s activities will have you putting unusual things together, playing surreal games and even hosting your own Dali inspired dinner party…!
