Explore Mexican culture with the artwork of Frida Khalo.
Frida Khalo is an iconic Mexican painter known for her use of vibrant colors and self-portraits. Provide an opportunity for students to research and view Khalo's artwork. Discuss what is unique about her artwork. Why did she use herself as the subject in many of her works of art? How is Mexican culture embodied in her artwork?
Invite students to recreate a self-portrait of Frida Khalo using the vibrant, blendable colors of Crayola® Oil Pastels.
Students choose a representation of Mexican culture as a background for the portrait. The example shown here illustrates the bold colors of a Mexican serape.
Cut out the portrait with Crayola Scissors and mount it on the background with a Crayola Glue Stick.
To accompany each student's portrait, have them write a summary paragraph of their learning about the artist Frida Khalo. Display portraits on a classroom bulletin board with student writing.
