Known for her abstract paintings inspired by nature and the African-American experience, Thomas was one of the first black women to break barriers in the art world.
Her vibrant, colorful, and rhythmic patterns gave her the opportunity to become the first African-American woman to have a solo exhibition at the renown Whitney Museum of American Art.
Celebrate Black History Month by creating a painting in the style of the great Alma Thomas.
