On a piece of paper write the definition for Surrealism: 
Surrealism is a dream-like image or an image that looks real that is not.  A group of artists from the early 20th century used what they called Surreal devices to create surreal images.  Perhaps the most famous of the group was Salvador Dali.

Below is an example of a surreal image created in photo-shop.  The parts used to make the image are shown to give you an idea of what you might do.  Don't copy the image but try to make one of your own in a similar manner. 

This  image is based on the surreal device Scale or "Wrong Size Relationship."
