How to Draw Frida Kahlo

My favorite Frida Kahlo for kids project is a simple portrait with a few key features. Try coloring with oil pastels on black paper for a very rich look.

Frida overcame many obstacles in her life, but she always found a way to continue making art. That’s a pretty good message for children of all ages to hear and apply to their own life.
