Art @ Tilton: Intro to Museum of Leo’s Art (MOLA)
December 4, 2021
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until December 30, 2021
Drawings & Paintings by Leo. All proceeds from the sale of Leo’s artwork support the autism community.
Leo, a youth artist with an autism diagnosis, enjoys creating seasonal scenes, vehicles of all kinds, animals, and various landscapes. While drawing is his first love, Leo is very creative at using shapes and other materials, morphing them into various objects. A resident of Dedham, Leo strives to progress each day to live his best life.
During the pandemic, art was one of Leo’s primary activities. Through his artwork, he remembered the many things he loved but couldn’t do because of social distancing. He used artwork during physical therapy sessions that became virtual during the pandemic-working on balance while he created themed, chalkboard drawing. Artwork was a source of happiness and self-regulation during such an unsettling time when Leo’s school and supporting therapies were halted.
