Selfportraits. I have introduced my 10,11 and 12 year olds to some of Frida
Kahlo´s great selfportraits and they loved them. They chose some things
that were really special to them and made selfportraits with those;
animals, special clothing etc. It would be nice to introduce the two of
them for selfportraits and pair the kids. Just a thought.
Best regards from the far north, Rosa
