artists: frida kahlo



I looked at the portraits of Frida Kahlo with a Year 4 class.  We discussed her life and how she used symbolism in her paintings to express her emotions and passions.

I challenged the children to do the same; to create a portrait of themselves which reflected who they are and what they love.

They downloaded photos of themselves onto Paint software and got to work!  Paint is a simplified version of Photoshop which is very easily accessible for children.
