The Art of Knowing: Frida Kahlo
12/5/17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$35
How to Live Boldly – Looking at the Life of Frida Kahlo through Art Making and Wine Tasting
A class taught by local crackerjacks Erin Dengerink & Leah Jackson
This evening event will explore the life and art of Frida Kahlo. Frida Kahlo was a famous Mexican artist who drew on her own life story to create passionate, surrealist paintings. Kahlo’s work could be political, personal, and fantastical. We will look at images of Kahlo’s artwork, discuss the ideas and symbols in her paintings, and experiment with making our own portraits based on Kahlo’s dynamic and psychological paintings.
The workshop will be paired with a tasting of wines that are inspired by Frida’s persona. We will taste and discuss the wines and be inspired by the passion of both the world of art and the art of wine. No prior wine knowledge needed.
No art experience necessary. Beginners welcome.
Drawing materials, paper, and wine tasting are included in the ticket price.
Class size limited to 16 people, so register early. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
The Art of Knowing is a new series of workshops which will pair great wines with the work of great artists from around the world.
