"La vida y la época de Frida Kahlo" icon

La vida y la época de Frida Kahlo

The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo explores the 20th-century icon who became an international sensation in the worlds of modern art and radical politics. Rita Moreno – the Oscar, Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winning actress – narrates the film. The PBS site provides an educational site, Kahlo's works of art, and resource links. Designed for 10-12 grade language arts, social studies and art classes, the lessons within the Teacher's Guide strengthen students' understanding of Kahlo's life as well as other subjects underscored in the film, such as Mexican culture and history, and art movements and styles. The activities can easily be adapted for use at the college level. Site can be accessed in Spanish or English.
