Children ages 6 through 12 can celebrate African American History Month by learning about artist Alma Woodsey Thomas at Art Explorers. The event takes place at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1 at the Walnut Creek Branch Library.
Children attending Art Explorers learn about different types of art, then develop their STEAM art skills by creating their own masterpieces. Attendees at the February event will learn about Ms. Thomas and her expressionist paintings. Attendees will then use tempera paint to create a field painting using the work of Ms. Thomas as inspiration.
