Find inspiration right outside your window! Join the Hirshhorn and the National Postal Museum for an online family program about the transformative artist Alma Thomas (1891-1978). She is best known for her use of color and repetitive shapes that form patterns sometimes called “Alma’s stripes.” Together, we will learn about Thomas’ life and work, and make our own art inspired by her process. We will be joined by author Jeanne Walker Harvey for a read-aloud of her new children’s book on Alma Thomas, Ablaze with Color.
