Inspired by Frida Kahlo

Portrait of a loved one by Jane Smith, paint, embroidery and photo transfer

Frida Kahlo’s self-portraits resonate femininity, grace and strength.  At our 2018 SanMiguel de Allende tour, the group participated in a mixed media class focusing on Frida Kahlo’s Botanicals. 
Portrait of a loved one by Roberta Lutgens, paint, embroidery and photo transfer

Inspired by Kahlo’s iconic style the students used photo portraits of themselves or loved ones, and incorporated the local flora with paint and embroidery in their plates. The portrait photo was transferred to the plate by using a photo transfer method.

We will be repeating this class on-site at Denver Botanic Gardens in February-March (starting on Wednesday February 20, 1-4 p.m.) – we still have some seats available for registration.
