Frida Kahlo was a Mexican artist who painted many self portraits that expressed not only the way she looked, but the way she was feeling. She included lots of bright colourful costumes and jewellery and often surrounded herself with her favourite flowers, fruits and animals and symbols of her Mexican culture.
In this class we will consider the idea of a psychological self portrait. Working with oil paint we will paint ourselves with objects and costumes that express how we feel.
Bring photos of yourself that you like, or a mirror… and some flowers, fruits, jewellery, dolls or figurines - objects that make you feel like you. Maybe a photo of your cat or dog so you can add them peeking over your shoulder.
We will learn basic drawing and painting techniques as we celebrate our authentic selves.
Monobrow and moustache optional!
