Jackson County High School in Tennessee

On April 14th, I and my boyfriend, Pete Diedrich, also an artist, were invited to the Jackson County High School in Tennessee. It was for the class for special education to do the portraiture of the student. I don't know how much they absorb how to do the portrait by my demo but I was happy to share the time and art with them. It was great to actually see their smile by doing a portrait.
"Kids with special needs aren't weird or odd. They only want what everyone wants... to be accepted. To be happy. " said Wendy Baker, the teacher of the class.
I appreciate that all the student has own unique way to express themselves:) It was pure and honest.
