Frida Kahlo Inspired Self-portraits

We looked at several of Frida Kahlo's self-portraits.  We discussed how she includes backgrounds and objects that are important to her in her paintings.  Students were asked to choose their favorite place and two of their favorite things to include in their self- portraits.  We did this project in phases, first we painted our background, then we drew and colored our self-portraits with crayons and finally drew our favorite objects.  We cut and glued our self-portraits and favorite objects onto our background.

    I like how they included some of their favorite things.
