In this project we read a book about Frida Kahlo. In this book we read about the ups and downs in her life. While reading this book we did worksheets to work on the Spanish that we saw in the book. This all lead up to our art piece and the artist statement that we made about the person of our choice.
Why I think that Frida made so many paintings about herself because she was struggling with her own self image. Such as in the movie that we watched we saw that she shaped herself around her husband and then she finally found herself. I like how my image came out because it looks like the original just with my frida. I did end up with it but I feel like I could have chosen a different picture with more content. I feel like Frida's art shows how she changed as she got older and how her as a person evolved.
