Frida Kahlo is one of Mexico’s most prolific and thought-provoking artists. Her works remain compelling today as they fearlessly address gender, sexuality, class, and race. This one-day workshop is a relaxing seminar-style mix of art history and studio practice.

About the instructors:
Kristi Cortez's passion for all forms of art began as a child when she was a dancer and evolved into a fascination with the social and emotional significance of art movements, techniques and narrative during her graduate studies. She earned her Master of Arts in Film Studies from Chapman University and now bridges her appreciation of art with her interest in teaching and education.

Yoli Manzo was born and raised in the Silicon Valley. She is well known as a highly creative mixed media artist in the Sacramento area, where she now resides. Yoli has immersed herself in making and exhibiting her Latino influenced art that includes icons such as Frida Kahlo, Santos, Guadalupe, vivid colors and edgy sensibility. Folk art and abstracts are a large focus of her recent works.
