Frida Kahlo

  $160.00


Our first adventure begins with Frida Kahlo.


“I don’t paint dreams or nightmares; I paint my own reality” – Frida Kahlo


Frida Kahlo is our first artist to study because of her fascinating life. Frida was not born an artist. She became an artist. At 6 years old she was diagnosed with Polio. Then in 1925 she was in a terrible accident and had to endure years of recovery and a lifetime of pain. It was during this time that she began a journey into the world of painting and journaling.

 

Frida Kahlo Class: 16 hours total

Each class is 4 hours (5 – 9pm) Tuesdays – May 24th, 31st, June 7th, 14th

During these 4 classes, you will learn bout the personal and professional experiences of Frida Kahlo, complete a mixed-media journal in her style and paint a portrait of this famous artist.


Due to the graphic nature of her work and her life, this class is for adults only.
