Curriculum    
   

Almost 100 years ago, in Buenos Aires, it was not common to see women in the School of Decorative Arts. But Ides Kihlen knew since he began to express himself through painting and music, that there was no other path in his life than art.

At that time it was not easy for women to break through and wish for something beyond family and children. But Ides could.

He married, and had two daughters, but he never abandoned his greatest passion, painting. Still married and with two daughters, she managed to continue studying with the great masters of Argentine painting, and even managed to travel to Paris for a while to continue her learning there. It was difficult for women to have a vocation and dedicate themselves to it. But Ides could.

A few years later, she separated from her husband, something unusual also at that time. Women were still married, it didn't matter if they wanted to stay married or not, if they were happy, if they wanted something else. They couldn't part. But Ides could.

For years she painted in her studio, dedicating hours a day to her painting and music. This was her life, days, hours, years dedicated to painting and music, alone in her studio, accumulating treasures that few of us had the happiness to appreciate. Until, much later, through her daughters, one of her works was "discovered" by a critic. By then, Ides was 80 years old. As soon as her works came to light, Ides began an unstoppable career in the difficult world of art. In general, people cannot succeed at 80 years of age. But Ides could.

Today she is an internationally recognized artist.

Today she turns 103 years old and continues to paint and play the piano, planning her next exhibitions around the world with her daughters, who manage her work. She plans new works, her head full of magical ideas, constantly creating. In general, people do not lead an active and lucid life until they are 103 years old. But Ides could.

Ides is a model for anyone. When there is a deep desire, there is no impediment, there are no barriers, there is no age, there is no time. You just have to follow the path and never abandon it. You have to dare, against all forecasts, to undertake, at any time, at any age. For me as her great niece, who loves art, Ides is an example. When negative thoughts assail me, doubts, or I feel that I will not be able, I think, Ides could.
