The Forever Frida Online Art Retreat celebrates the spirit of beloved Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo (1907-1954).
I wrote a best-selling book called Forever Frida (hardback, Adams Media/Simon & Schuster, 2019) and it serves as the foundation for this retreat! I will share my favorite Frida stories not only from the book, but from my extensive research. I didn't have room to add everything, but saved ALL my notes.
The projects are themed around Frida's style. To me, I love to connect with the playful side of Frida. Yes, she went through a lot of drama in her life, but she also was a lively and comical person. She loved decorating, journaling, and crafting. Her fashion game was strong! We will go beyond painting popular versions of her likeness and create projects inspired by her spirit, personality, art, home decor style, her fashion, etc.

Limited spots because I’ll be packing and shipping the kit boxes, I want to keep it manageable!
