This lecture and slide show will not only explore the dynamics of early 20th century European and Mexican art, but also illuminate the life of Frida Kahlo and her artworks as gifts of expressive, visionary self-interpretation.

Frida Kahlo made her own face famous by painting a seemingly endless series of self-portraits that spanned her 30-year career. All of her works showed a strong sense of pride in her heritage that ran counter to traditional European art schools. She also had a very real, if not obsessive, passion for her marriage and husband, who did not follow the bourgeois and Catholic traditions of monogamous relationships 

Frida was an artist who truly understood the human spirit and its ability to rise above pain, suffering and disappointment in order to share in the precious essence of life.

This is a very sad experience, so be warned!


"Karla has an amazing amount of knowledge about the detailed meanings in each and every painting of Frida Khalo's The slide show was excellent and presented on a screen that was life-size which enabled the finest of details in the paintings to be observed.
I learned about the struggles and pain that Frida underwent and how she lived through her paintings.
Karla's enthusiasm for this artist is outstanding and contagious. I looked forward to continuing to learn more about the Spanish masters. Karla's teaching style is all about the detailed knowledge she has of each and every painting.
I highly recommend Karla to anyone who wishes to learn about great artists"

"Once again Karla had me totally captivated with her moving and inspirational account of the traumatic life and works of Frida Kahlo.
An artist who, whilst I had some knowledge of prior to this lecture, had no real insight into how tragic and painful her life really was. Tissues were handed out as tears flowed during this session, an indication of how touching this lecture proved to be.
Her teaching style is Inspirational and Passionate. I always recommend Karla to others."
