How to Draw Frida Kahlo

My favorite Frida Kahlo for kids project is a simple portrait with a few key features. Draw her hair up, with flowers and classic heavy eyebrows, and there’s not much mistaking whose portrait you are drawing.

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 hopefully come to admire.
