Week 1 of Easter Art camp is underway here at Art Academy.

All of the artists have been busy over the past two days learning all about the famous Mexican artist called Frida Kahlo. We have been drawing her portrait, mixing lots of colours and painting her portrait using acrylic paints on canvas. The artists are aged 5-9! Can you believe it with this kind of work. Check out the results below. Has Frida Kahlo ever looked more beautiful? Well done everyone. Scroll down for more of their work inspired by Vincent Van Gogh!

We checked out a great storybook about Frida Kahlo by Laurence Anholt.  It is available to buy online or you can order it from my favourite library Rathmines Library.  You can also listen to the story on YouTube here #FridaKahlo #ArtAcademy #ArtHistory

 

The artists created another painting, on an even larger canvases this time based on the work “Sun Flowers” by Vincent Van Gogh
