Frida Kahlo Biography
Learn about the life and work of fine artist Frida Kahlo, celebrated around the world for her deeply symbolic surrealist paintings. Young art historians read a short biography of Kahlo, learning about her childhood in Mexico, an accident that shaped her life, her marriage to fellow artist Diego Rivera, and the motifs found in her artwork. Students then take inspiration from Kahlo's highly biographical paintings to create a self portrait of their own. This worksheet integrates well with a fifth-grade art history or fine arts lesson.
