The Importance of the Family Selfie

Selfies are the new thing. Originally, I thought a selfie was just a picture you took of yourself, alone. But as it turns out, you can have as many people in the photo as possible, as long as you are taking the photo yourself.

I think it’s important for Latino children to grow up learning about their culture and art — so this led me to digging around for some inspiration for a nursery based off of Frida’s work.
