|Meet Wilton Tejeda, our Featured Young Artist of the Month for August!|
While you might not guess it from looking at his work, Wilton had never painted before being hired as a teen-artist at AFH in 2010! He attributes his fast learning and motivation to his encouraging mentor Stephen Hamilton, who has helped him with commissioned paintings and perfecting the portfolio of pieces that got him accepted into MassArt this fall! In addition to his work in the studios, he has done quite a bit of live-painting for our clients in the Lewis Gallery adding a special interactive element to those events. We are so proud of Wilton and all his contributions to our organization. Check out some of his amazing paintings here and watch our Facebook page throughout the month for more fun facts about this inspiring young man before he heads off to college!
