Welcome to the Bureau of Surrealist Enquiries, Greywood Arts’ interactive family-friendly evening making surrealist art, collages and writing surreal poems. Learn about the revolutionary cultural movement that aimed to release the creative potential of the unconscious mind – and enjoy a surreal snack!

Come up to our art studio to learn a little about famous surrealists like André Breton, Salvator Dalí, and René Magritte. Surrealism features the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur – ideas go straight from the subconscious to the page, without regard to rules or expectations. We will try out automatic drawing, collage-making, and the “exquisite corpse” technique for creating collaborative drawings and poems. Then, we’ll share the results with each other. Get surreal with us for Culture Night!
