Alma Thomas inspired collage


First graders learned about Georgia born artist and educator Alma WoodseyThomas (1891-1978). She was a pioneer for African American women in fine art. 
 Thomas is best known for her nature inspired abstract color block paintings of from the 60-70s. 
Students created torn paper collages in the style of her painting The Eclipse with an emphasis
on the colors of the rainbow.  When dry they were cut into circular shapes and look great
displayed in our new hall!
