Event Description

Teacher Program: The Legacy of Alma Thomas—Cultivating Mindfulness, Perspective-taking, and Problem-solving

Alma Woodsey Thomas (1891–1978), the world-renowned, D.C.-based artist and teacher, used her life and art to make the world a better, brighter, more beautiful place. Join DC-Project Zero and three fantastic museums—the National Gallery of Art, National Museum of Women in the Arts, and Phillips Collection—in celebrating Thomas’s legacy. We will explore the ways in which her life and art can help us cultivate mindfulness, perspective-taking, and problem-solving in ourselves and in our learners.
