This class is part of our free class series in honor of Black History Month.
Alma Thomas was an Expressionist painter, known for her colorful abstract paintings. Her paintings are known for their pattern, rhythm, and color. Thomas remains an influence to young and old as she was a cornerstone for the Fine Arts at Howard University, started a successful art career later in her life, and took major strides during times of segregation as an African-American female artist. Thomas believed that creativity should be independent of gender or race, creating works with a focus on accidental beauty and the abstraction of color.
