Frida Kahlo’s Story

This is how the story of Frida Kahlo begins (by Katelyn K., grade 8).

Hola! My name is Frida Kahlo, and i was born in Coyocoan, Mexico on July 6th, 1907. As a child I never was interested in art, but after I got in a severe bus accident my whole life changed. After my accident I was inspired to share my life through painting and art. Some of my most famous pieces are ‘The Broken Column’ and ‘The Two Fridas’. I’m mostly known for my self-portraits though. I often paint my self for who I really am.


Frida Kahlo (RMS182) is part of a series of ‘Artist’ rocks created by students 8th grade Visual Arts Students in Mrs. Hahn’s class at Rogers Middle School, Minnesota, USA. We invite you to visit all RMS rocks and submit your comments and feedback.
