Our classes are called Hirst and Kahlo.  Hirst class is named after Damien Hirst, who is an English artist, entrepreneur and art collector.  Death is a central theme in Hirst's works. He became famous for a series of artworks in which dead animals are preserved, sometimes having been dissected, in formaldehyde. The best-known of these was The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, a 14-foot (4.3 m) tiger shark immersed in formaldehyde in a clear display case. He has also made "spin paintings", created on a spinning circular surface, and "spot paintings", which are rows of randomly coloured circles created by his assistants.


Kahlo class is named after Frida Kahlo, who was a Mexican artist.  She is now regarded as one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century.  She is famous for her emotionally charged self-portraits and autobiographical paintings. Kahlo's work draws upon a diverse range of influences, including Surrealism, ancient Aztec belief, popular Mexican folklore, Eastern philosophy and medical imagery.
