Frida Kahlo (1907 - 1954) was a Mexican artist who was influenced by the Mexican Revolution. She experienced a disability at two times in her life.  Her determinism helped her cope with the pain of overcoming polio, a difficult marriage and bus-trolley accident.  Frida Kahlo’s curiosity and love for nature were often the subjects of her paintings.  Known as the “mother of the selfie,” Frida also created more than 200 paintings of herself. This unit of lessons is to recognize the creativity and imagination of Frida Kahlo.
