The founder of A.R.T. (Art Realization Techniques) tells the story of his efforts to give physically handicapped students an outlet for their artistic creativity. After a one-hour visit to the Matheny School in New Jersey, Tim Lefens is inspired to work with its students, developing new techniques in teaching and eventually organizing an art show at a New York gallery. As his project grows, he faces objections within the school that might bring it to an end. Grover Gardner reads with an announcer’s tones but also infuses the story with Lefens’s passsion and creates well-developed voices for the secondary characters. This upbeat, dramatic story of overcoming odds is a day-brightener listeners shouldn’t overlook. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
