In this lecture we will immerse ourselves in the captivating art of Frida Kahlo that is characterised by vibrant colours, surreal elements and intense emotional expression.
In her self-portraits, she intricately integrates symbols of Mexican culture and personal experiences into her compositions. Her bold colour palette, naïve style and exploration of themes such as pain, identity and relationships contribute to the uniqueness of her art. Her works are rooted in Mexicanidad and often contain social and political commentary that powerfully reflect her life and the times in which she lived.
Join educator / arts historican Karla Ingleton Darocas BA (Hons) as she explains the universal themes that make Frida Kahlo a timeless and influential figure. Whether you are a seasoned art lover or a novice, take this opportunity to broaden your understanding of one of the most famous female artists of the 20th century.

Her teaching style is Inspirational and Passionate. I always recommend Karla to others."
