DC-based, and world-renowned artist and teacher Alma Thomas (1891–1978) used her life and her art to make the world a better, brighter, more beautiful place. Join DC-Project Zero and four fantastic museums—National Gallery of Art, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Smithsonian American Art Museum, and The Phillips Collection—in celebrating Thomas’s legacy by exploring the ways in which her life and art can help us cultivate mindfulness, perspective-taking, and problem-solving in ourselves and in our learners.
This virtual teacher professional development program is free and open to all educators.
In anticipation of the professional development workshop, we encourage you to visit Alma W. Thomas: Everything Is Beautiful, on view at The Phillips Collection until January 23.
