Alma Thomas was our artist of inspiration for our very first project with the new group of kindergarten artists at Dolvin. We looked at examples of her simple and beautiful paintings of falling leaves, radiating suns, and curvy rainbows. Did you know she was born right here in Georgia? Studying artists from our home state is one of our objectives, and when I discovered this fact about her I was very excited to add her to our artist list. The students really enjoyed the watercolor paint over crayon resist technique, and, of course, watching the water change color every time we rinsed our brushes.
