Frida Kahlo

The third and fifth grade students just completed their Frida Kahlo Portraits!  We have been working on them for several weeks.  This project was a little more complicated because we wanted to make sure the images were as fascinating as her life.  The students were interested to learn all about her, and they were very impressed with the fact that she always lived life to the fullest in spite of the tragic things that happened to her.  They thought the paintings she created were sometimes strange, but they understood that she used art as a way deal with the pain in her life.  Frida was a work of art herself with the way that she decorated herself in colorful clothing and accessories, and these images portray her that way!
