Alma Thomas was an African-American artist and art educator. When she was a child she liked to make puppets and sculptures. Thomas is famous for her abstract paintings made with patterns of bright colors that looked like a mosaic.
1. Use any materials you have at home to create a mosaic pattern with bright colors.
2. Fold a paper and cut out a shape. Unfold the paper and use a small shape to print a pattern with bold colors.
3. Create a puppet or sculpture with recycled materials.
