Second graders read Frida Kahlo: The Artist Who Painted Herself by Margaret Frith. The class watched a BrainPop Video about Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo. We also discussed papel picaos (paper flag). Students were asked to create a portrait of Frida on both sides of their paper. One Frida was happy and one was sad. Then students picked their best side and added a papel picaos frame around the portrait.
The artwork above was created by Daniel, 2nd grade.
Objective: Students will be able to create two Frida Kahlo portraits that illustrate two different emotions using pencil and crayon.
ACOS.2.3 Express ideas, feelings, and moods through traditional media in creating works of art.
