and Determination... Seth Chwast was diagnosed with autism as a very young child, and lived for yrs in a world of roller coasters, haunted houses and classical music. A dramatic change came in 2003 when at age 20 he took an oil painting class at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Seth, who rarely speaks, began describing his world in paint. It turned out that he has an innate ability to mix colors and create amazing works of art that reflect his vision of His world and the world around him.
The book "An Unexpected Life: A Mother and Son's Story of Love, Determination, Autism and Art is a MUST read. Thanks for turning in to the Interview today with Debra Chwast the mother of Seth. Your heart will surely be touched....
