I was sitting and thinking about fun activities to kick off the first day of school, and started just browsing through my notes. The one that leapt out at me was the topic, How to Draw Frida Kahlo. I stumbled through some absolutely wonderful how-to videos for this earlier this summer while researching Frida activities. There were so many that it was hard for me to choose just one - which I featured in my master post, Frida Kahlo Lesson Plans, Activities, Coloring Sheets and More.
So I made a note to just go ahead and write a post sharing a variety of the best video tutorials for drawing the legendary Mexican artist. I tried to choose videos with different styles so that you had a nice selection to choose from... or do them all!
I hope you enjoy these. And if you are interested in other Frida-related crafts, check out my post Frida Kahlo Crafts for Kids. You'll be sure to be inspired!
