Kahlo inspires

Art Club has been looking at the work of Freda Kahlo. Her life was reflected in her expressive self-portraits. The children were asked to produce a drawing of themselves, taking care to think of the proportions of the face.  Like Freda Kahlo’s portraits they were asked to surround their self-portraits with things that are important to them or their culture.

The children transferred their final image onto a printing plate. Once the plates were inked up, they took several prints. The results were fantastic!
