In honor of famed Mexican painter Frida Kahlo’s birthday this week, we are sharing ways you can expose your kids to Frida’s life and art. One of the most fun ways to learn her history is through the Frida’s World storybook app.
Instead of overwhelming users with Frida’s personal life details, this app focuses on her art and its impact. It inspires kids to use art to express themselves, no matter their circumstances. It celebrates Frida’s unique style and her positive attitude, all while showcasing her art with visual replicas.
Not only will you read about Frida herself, but you will learn a few artistic terms and techniques. Listen to the story in English or Spanish, and then give your child a chance to be an artist for a moment by coloring and saving his/her own “paintings.”
