Chapter 1: Artists Discussion Questions Discuss the answers to these questions with your classmates.

1. How do you think painting helped Frida Kahlo with her problems?

In my opinion, I think painting served as a medium for Frida to vent her all her frustration, sadness and other emotional turbulences out. In this way, Frida would not become a woman deeply depressed, consumed by her own grief and frustration. Through painting, Frida found a new meaning of life as well as a better way to live her own life after the fateful accident. Through painting, Frida would not feel like an invalid. She would feel that she still can do almost anything. This was especially important to boost her confidence in life and the real world. Soon she would not feel handicapped and hampered by her physical disabilities because she knew that despite her physical weaknesses, she was still the same person she was since young.
2. Many of Kahlo’s paintings express pain and tragedy. Do you like to see this in a

work of art? If so, why? If not, what would you like to see? Yes. This is because I think pain and tragedy can depict and portray the reality of this world better and in finer detail. When I see a piece of art expressing pain and tragedy, I will reflect on all the things I have done throughout my life. I will think about my sins and what I should do to be cleared of them. Only when I saw pain and tragedy that I will feel more appreciative towards my life. I will also realize that how fortunate I am and how many people out there who do not have Lady Luck on their side.
3. What is your opinion of the mischievous acts carried out by the Cachuchas?

Why did they do these things? Was their behaviour acceptable? Why or why not? I think those acts are very rude and the Cachuchas should be dealt with severely. They did these things mainly because they wanted to show their contempt for authority. They also wanted to show that they are not tied to the social standards of that time and that they are in fact on a class of their own. They also wanted to gain attention from the teachers and students in their school. In my opinion, their behaviour was not acceptable. This is because in my opinion, every person in this world is the same. There is no need to show off what you are capable of. Displaying our talents is a good thing, but we must do it the correct and polite way so that we will not irritate or hurt others. Other than that, their mischievous acts had done nothing good to themselves, their school or the community. Instead of wasting their time and getting into trouble for nothing, they should make full use of their relatively high intellects and carry out beneficial activities for the school and the local community.
