Teen On The Spectrum Uses Art To Connect

Zach Becenti has an extraordinary talent for drawing. He’s also on the spectrum, and up until a few years ago, he was reluctant to interact with people. Then his teachers noticed that amazing drawings of John K. Kennedy were popping up all over the school — and Zach’s talent was discovered. Once other students and teachers recognized his gift, Zach opened up more. Their compliments and attention even encouraged him to get more detailed with his drawings.

He began with portraits, and is now working on concept art. His latest work is drawing disasters as though they never happened.

Zach graduates high school in June, and plans to study art in college. Watch the video to learn more about this extraordinary teenager!
