London's Tate Museum has been delivering online art lessons, in partnership with Meridien Hotels and Resorts, with its Unlock Art Series. Its latest film taps actor Peter Capaldi, who recently became the twelfth Dr. Who, to deliver a fun primer on Surrealist art. The actor, as well as the film's far out visuals, entertain as they show how how artists like Breton, Miro and Dali created their work based on the studies of Freud, who later went on to disapprove of their work.

Check out more lessons from the Unlock Art series on the Tate's Youtube Channel.
