Pre-kindergarten for 2-year-olds Students Create Work Inspired by Alma Woodsey Thomas

To celebrate Black History Month, pre-kindergarten for 2-year-old students in Christina Del Vecchio’s class learned about the work of painter Alma Woodsey Thomas. Thomas, who taught junior high school art for 35 years and became a painter in  her late 60s, created colorful, abstract paintings, with nature as a frequent motif. “Students used watercolors to create a group project inspired by our discussion on the artist,” Del Vecchio said. “We drew inspiration from Thomas’ painting, ‘The Eclipse.’”
