We celebrated Hispanic Heritage month by spotlighting one of my favorite artists, Frida Kahlo (1910 – 1954). We examined her use of self-portraiture and animals and created a shadowbox collage using Mixed Media.

We complete our Frida Kahlo inspired works by adding Metallic paint and beginning the movement of Pointillism.

Questions to ask your child:

“What is Metallic Paint?”


We will be examining The Scream by Edvard Munch as we get into a Halloween mood…

When I talk about this painting to young children, I like to use the word “surprised” instead of “scared.” It just sits better with this age group.

Questions to ask your child:

“What are you surprised about?”
