Frida Kahlo and Kindergarten

Half of the Kindergarten class was introduced to Frida Kahlo this past week.
 They learned about her physical difficulties that were created by having polio early in her life and
how she transferred that experience into very personal paintings. We looked at the animals, flowers
and her husband Diego Rivera who was also a very important painter and was present in many of her paintings
We looked at age appropriate self- portraits and talked about the difference between a portrait and a self portrait.
We did a quick colorful pastel self portrait as  a practice for an upcoming project.The other half will catch up this week as I had jury duty last week.
