Quote from Dylan Kuel:
"I am able to express myself with art. I get focused and detailed. When I do my art I feel emotional and passionate and dedicated. My art work builds confidence and it builds character. Down syndrome doesn't affect my art work. I just show my expressions of being that unique."
