Magnolia Junior High School Spanish I students are hosting a Teacher’s Discovery Traveling Exhibit during the week of February 4-7. The classroom of MJHS Spanish teacher, Marissa Youngblood, has been transformed into an art exhibit featuring the incredible Mexican paintings of Frida Kahlo. Frida was married to Mexican muralist Diego Rivera but won acclaim for her own paintings, including many self-portraits. All kindergarten students in the District will get tour the exhibit and participate in activities related to the artwork of Kahlo. The students and staff will enjoy the beautiful reproductions, including life size photos of Frida. The exhibit celebrates fine art, women in art and Mexican culture.
The event was funded through a generous grant from the Magnolia Public Schools Foundation.
