When I first discovered artist and educator Alma W. Thomas’ work, I was captivated by the bright repeating patterns. Learning more about her practice and her “Alma Stripes,” I use this practice as an exploration of my watercolor materials to focus on varying color combinations and pattern making by playing with varying water-paint ratios and trying different types of paintbrushes.

Inspired by Thomas’ explorations of color, abstraction, and pattern making, participants will explore using Alma’s Stripes to create their own geometric patterns.

Join zoom 15 minutes early (4:45pm) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 5:05pm PST so that everyone has plenty of time to join!


  • Your favorite Watercolor paints — at least 3 colors (some of Anjelika’s CfM favorites include Fluorescent Brick Red, Ultramarine Blue, and CfM Pacific)
  • Watercolor paper: * 2-4 sheets of watercolor paper (cold press preferred) between 5”x7” to 8”x10” (we will be working in multiples so helpful to have some time to dry in between) * 1-2 scrap pieces of watercolor paper
  • Brushes (round or flat preferred), for example size 4 round or size 4 flat
  • Pencil
  • Water
  • Paper towel
  • optional: artists tape, washi tape


Anjelika found her love for CfM when she was on the hunt for the perfect watercolors to match the landscape of Death Valley and Mojave Desert back in 2019. She loves typography, design and color theory and draws inspiration from textiles, political posters, and patterns found in nature. She is an artist-in-residence at the Georgetown Lombardi Arts & Humanities Program at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C.. She is a scientist, researcher, and educator; by day, Anjelika is the Associate Director of the Massive Data Institute at Georgetown University.
