3rd Grade Frida Kahlo Self Portraits
3rd Grade artists have been learning about the art and culture of Mexico. They learned about one of Mexico's most famous artists - Frida Kahlo! They noticed how she created a lot of self portraits with animals and nature items! We drew our own self-portraits with correct facial proportions. Then, we talked about the art element of Value and created a variety of values in our backgrounds with the green paint in the leaves. Finally, we added nature items like animals, bugs, flowers etc.
