Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo: ” I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality”

Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter who painted mostly self-portraits. Frida Kahlo’s work has been celebrated in Mexico as an artistic and symbolic representation of Mexican national and indigenous tradition.  Frida’s paintings showed her inner and outer self by painting self portraits that had fantastic elements to highlight feelings and values. The project designed for Frida Kahlo will invite students to draw a basic representation of their outer self on transparency sheets and paint a watercolor painting representative of their inner feelings, following Frida’s example of self portraits.
