My name is Rita

I have Down syndrome. I look different.
And I see things in a different way.

I have a job at a coffee shop. I ride the city bus to get there. I do yoga and folk dance class. I play music and act in plays. And I’m trying to learn sign language.

But I like making art best of all. Art is beautiful and I have a lot of fun making it.

Which ones are yours?

My Friends

Here is where we will feature some of my friends who are great artists.
My World

When I’m not making art, I do lots of other things. I work the cash register at my job at the Coffee Shed. I ride a city bus to get there. My yoga and folk dance classes are where I meet my good friends. We move around and do cool poses. I also like playing music. And drama because we get to wear different clothes and pretend to be someone else.
Sign language is hard to learn, but I practice to get better.

My Mom Helen

She helps me make art.
She can show you how we do it.
Then you can learn how to make art too.

Uncle Mark

He wants to talk to gallery owners and art collectors.

Uncle Mark lives in New York City.  It’s a very busy place.  Full of traffic and people.
Some stores have art on the walls to buy.
Uncle Mark thinks my art can be in those stores.
And people will buy it.

My Book

A lot of my drawings are in here.
And pictures of me doing things. And stories about me.
Would you like to see it?  You can get one if you’d like.
