This is one of my favorites! My Grade 4 students learned all about Frida Kahlo and her brilliant self portraits. This was a multi-media lesson beginning with a guided demonstration on how to draw Frida. Students used oil pastels and watercolors to design their portraits and background. Lastly students created tissue paper flowers for her crown.
My Grade 1 students had fun choosing funny animals to represent Frida. They used sponge paint to design a textured frame. Students created tissue paper flowers to add actual texture and black felt for Frida’s infamous unibrow.
I must say I’m obsessed with the outcome and the amazing artwork of my little artists.🎨💓
