The Chic Assignment Check-In | June 2021 | Handel + Frida Kahlo + Your Poetry


Welcome to The Chic Assignment Check-in for June, 2021. We are going to learn more about George Handel, Frida Kahlo, and much more. I'm also reading your poetry today. 

Chic Assignment no. 1 Enjoy Handel's Largo from Xerxes 

A beautiful and hauntingly enigmatic piece, Handel's Largo from Xerxes performed by Hauser will astound you. Today we are learning more about George Frideric Handel, and his illustrious career from the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorale

Chic Assignment no. 2 Explore the artwork of Frida Kahlo 

Frida Kahlo by Guillermo Kahlo, public domain

Frida Kahlo was a Mexican surrealist painter known for her self-portraits and portrayal of Mexican nature and artifacts. She lived a brief and tumultuous life, but is one of the most famous female painters of all time. Today we are learning ten interesting facts about her life. You can learn more about her artwork here

Chic Assignment no. 3 Dress the table beautifully

This month I shared my tablecloth routine from start to finish as part of Mega Motivation. I hope it encouraged you to dress your table beautifully this month, even if you are dining alone. 

Chic Assignment no. 4 Write a poem for someone in your life and give it to them 

I'm sharing a small selection of your poetry today. I was completely blown away by the beauty of your poetry. Thank you so much for submitting it. I wish I could have read every one in this video. I encourage you to check out the original video on YouTube, which has all of the poems in the comments.
