Happy Birthday, Salvador Dali!

This week we’re celebrating the birthday of Spanish surrealist, Salvador Dali. He was known for painting very realistic pictures of ideas and objects that don’t make sense in the real world.  He became very famous for his paintings, and even more famous for his amazing mustache!

Salvador Dali’s birthday was May 11, and my son and I got into the fun by making our own eyeliner mustaches!

This week, let’s do self portraits with crayons, markers, paint, whatever you have handy.  But then, let’s add crazy mustaches!  Send me your Salvador Dali mustache self portraits to emckernan@stalsschool.org.

I am St. Aloysius School's art teacher for grades K-8. It is a joy to bring art instruction to our students.
