Surrealism inspired by Rene Magritte

Perceiving the eye as a mirror in two dimensions:

  • A mirror reflecting what it is actually seeing
  • A mirror to the heart, reflecting the feelings deep within
The children also added verses to add more detail to their drawing, whilst also making use of another expression of art: writing.

"The snow is cold so my eye turned blue"
Green-glowing eyes to see better at night
"The sun was shining so much that my eye burned red"

"His eyes are so blue that the clouds reflect in his eyes"
The eyes saw so much rain that they produced tears
Eyes inspired by the Northern Lights

"The sun is so hut it burned my eyes"
"There is so much rain it made me cry"
"It's so snowy I'm freezing cold"
