Alma Woodsey Thomas(1891-1978)
For Black History Month we looked at the art of Alma Thomas. She was an important role model for women, African-American artists, and older artists (she was recognized for her paintings after her retirement from teaching). She was also the first African-American woman to have a solo exhibition of her work at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art. Alma Thomas loved to smile and she liked to paint with bright colours. Primary colours were often used in her artwork to make her paintings look happy and vibrant. Thomas brings art for kids by inspiring them to look closely at nature and to use patterns and colours to create art that makes them happy.
The children are settling well in nursery.......
