Family Art Nights
We hosted 2 family art nights where we learned about the lives of famous Mexican painters Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. We read picture book biographies about both painters and then created our own art following their examples. For the Frida project we painted our self-portraits and added animals, insects, flowers, and plants just like Frida’s famous paintings. For the Diego project one of his famous paintings was sketched onto 4 24x36 pieces of paper and we painted each piece separately and then put them together to make the painting. These programs were in collaboration with two local teachers Tobias McCandless and Heidi Herder.
