Frida Kahlo Lesson Plan
Frida Kahlo de Rivera was a Mexican artist best known for her self-portraits. Many classify Frida as a surrealist but she claimed that she did not paint dreams but her painful reality. When Frida was 13 years old, she was on a bus that crashed into a trolley car. The young girl spent 3 months in a full body cast and although she completely recovered from the accident and regained her ability to walk, she spent most of her life in pain. She began painting to occupy her time while she was bed-ridden. She combined elements of Mexican and Amerindian mythology, dramatic symbolism, and a primitive perspective.
