How is love expressed in art?
Love of oneself is an intrinsic part of our identities. Kahlo's work portrays the conflicts in her life: her frustrated desire to have children; her turbulent relationship with her husband, Diego Rivera; and her physical challenges. It also expresses the many things she loved and cherished. In this activity you will design a memory box that reflects how love can be expressed in art.
