Grade 3/4 C&D – Frida Kahlo inspired monkey portraits

My Semester 2 Grade 3/4 students recently created these gorgeous Frida Kahlo inspired monkey portraits.

We explored and analyzed Frida’s self portraits and learnt about the different animals she had as pets. We talked about how her pet monkeys always appeared to be protecting her in her paintings and we discussed a photo of Frida and her monkey Fulang Chang. We also observed lots of tropical plants and interesting accessories in her portraits.

I just can’t get enough of these fun and fabulous artworks! This is always a great task.
