Art and Music in The Age of Surrealism: A Torrent of Dreams. Learning Objectives for this video:

  • Discover the fantastical vision of a group of artists profoundly influenced by the published theories of Einstein and Freud and the devastation of World War 1.
  • Uncover the reasons why Surrealist artists combined elements from the everyday world with images from the subconscious, and experience excerpts from nonsensical compositions that playfully resonate with unrelated rhythms and sounds.
  • Trace the birth of post-World War 2 art movements to the many Surrealists who fled to New York City from war-torn Europe.
  • Discover the many benefits of using online video for visual learning. Using educational video for teaching the K-12 curriculum provides online learning for children and students of all ages and abilities.
  • Using subtitled video - or video with closed captions - enables children to choose between watching, listening to, or reading each presentation whichever best suites their individual learning style. A wonderful option particularly for dyslexia and special needs education.
  • Having the student read the subtitles on a second or third viewing without sound, enables the improvement of Reading and Literacy skills AND helps retention of the information being learned.
