Alma Woodsey Thomas Inspired Art

Alma Thomas was an artist and teacher who lived and worked in Washington D.C., for 38 years she worked as an art teacher in the public schools and built an outstanding art program which integrated all types of learners. Her work was loved by President Obama that he had her piece “Resurrection” purchased and had it displayed in the dinning room at the White House. The children loved seeing samples of her work, learning about her life and fascinated by her use of color. Some of the children felt she used rainbow colors in her paintings. The students were encouraged to use many colors in their own paintings. -Mrs. Monica; Art Teacher
