Hi I’m Reed, and the biggest challenge I’ve faced is having autism. I am a very positive young man who loves to attend school, and I’m always eager to participate in all activities. I enjoy interacting with my classmates and teachers. I started participating in art as an activity at school. At my school we have an art room where students try to create new and interesting things with the help of experienced volunteer artists. Because of this I have learned a new technique — layer painting.
