The art room 2017!

It’s a new year and that means a new door display! This year I’ve been inspired by Frida Kahlo and her beautiful quote, “I paint flowers, so they will not die”. I used old leftover scraps from the childrens’ paintings to make this display! I cannot wait to see all my wonderful mini artists next week!

  1. Thanks Chelsea, love that you’ve re-used scraps from the kids’ paintings to make this.

    At the moment I’m reading a memoir on Francis Bacon who said, ‘the whole point of flowers is that they die’! I doubt Frida and Francis ever met, but if they did I’m sure it would have been a lively discussion

    1. Sounds like an interesting read Matt! It’s strange how the same subject matter can mean such different things to so many people. Take Andy Goldsworthy for example, his whole art philosophy is about the ephemeral landscape, but Kahlo wants to preserve it forever. Equally as interesting perspectives!
