20 Ways to celebrate Frida Kahlo



Here are 20 ways to celebrate Frida Kahlo during her birthday month, July.  First, enjoy these free coloring page printables for you, as well as my favorite Frida-themed inspirations!


Honestly though – what do you think Frida would have thought of all of this?

Do you think she’d smirk in pride at the thought of being such an icon for women, Mexico, and artists? Or do you think she would be annoyed? I think it’s a good thing if people can draw inspiration from her to push through struggles and strife in order to create art and leave a mark on the world.

Seeing her image everywhere reminds us of that.

Frida was the ultimate visual storyteller. No matter what, she never stopped creating. It was the only thing that helped her survive each day, no matter how painful.


20 Ways to Celebrate Frida Kahlo: Let’s channel her rebel spirit, push ourselves beyond our mind’s limits, no excuses!

Paint a selfie, write out our own original quotes, create original art that makes people say, “wow” – and add color all along the way.

What will people remember about you on your 109 birthday anniversary?

With or without a unibrow, here are twenty ideas to bring out your inner Frida. Rock on with your bad self!
