Amari Taylor found a new passion for painting.
WASHINGTON – It’s time to stand up!
The next month is Autism Awareness Month and Friday April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day.
Now we know that coping with the pandemic was challenging for most of us, but more difficult for some.
Like 13-year-old Amari Taylor.
Amari has autism and it was very difficult for him not to go to school and have his friends.
But he found a new passion in painting. Creating his art and posting it on Instagram made him extremely happy …
Amari’s mother tells us that teachers and specialists sent good wishes and expressed their love for Amari’s work and his developmental steps.
He even turned his hobby into a business!
Amari has a studio that exhibits around 70 works of art …
The studio is set up so customers can stop by and shop by appointment …
Amari’s artwork was sent to California!
