Alma Woodsey Thomas Rainbows

Standard

I really like the work of Alma Thomas. Her art is cheerful and fun with lots of color.

“Thomas became an important role model for women, African Americans, and older artists. She was the first African American woman to have a solo exhibition at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art, and she exhibited her paintings at the White House three times.”

It was a great project to supplement the Kindergarten classroom lessons about weather and rainbows.

We did these with my clothespin and sponge paint daubers that I made after seeing them in a preschool classroom.
