6. Work of Art (include image):
a. Title: Self-Portrait with Monkey
b. Artist: Frida Kahlo
c. Media: Oil on masonite
d. Why this work of art (We chose this work of art because
we wanted something that the children could relate too.
Although the children can not relate to Frida Kahlo directly,
they can relate to the fact that they can both create art and
use Kahlos self portraits as inspiration for their own art. It is
important for young children to look at and understand
themselves before they are able to understand others. Frida
Khalo is known for her work with self-portraits. The concept of
this piece is simple enough for preschool aged children, while
it also introduces them to a notable artist. The bright colors,
plants, and monkeys will draw students attention as well.
e. Inquiry questions to lead discussion:
What do you notice about the painting?
Who do you see in the picture?
What do you think the artist used to create this
What shapes and colors do you see?
