Daily Show with Tom Doyle
Tom Doyle, 13, a student at Sierra Madre School, has discovered the artist within. On Sunday, January 24, 2010, he visited the Festival of Abilities held at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. There, he took a wheelchair painting class from Tommy Hollenstein who is not only an accomplished and well-respected artist, he is also an inspiring teacher. With paint applied to the front right wheel of Tom’s chair, Mr. Hollenstein guided and encouraged Tom as he created the beautiful work of art we present here.
Tom’s mother, Kathleen Doyle, is a Special Education teacher in Alhambra, California and a great role model who brings happiness and hope to the special needs community. The Academy of Special Dreams is honored to showcase Tom’s beautiful piece of art in our galleries. Congratulations, Tom.
