I compiled the disabilies list for your use. Linda

One of the teachers on the Getty arts ed. list serve is searching for =
artists with learning disabilities. I thought perhaps some of the =
teachers on the grad list might be interested. If anyone has =
suggestions or other famous people who are learning disabled, I will =
forward it to that list also. Thanks in advance. Linda Kelty

Chuck Close speaks about his learning disability in the video which I =
ordered=20
from Sax. He talks about how he became the class clown and played with=20
puppets and passed high school classes by doing the project option. It =
is an=20
inspiring video in many ways...he has had had to overcome tremendous=20
obstacles many times in his life, but expresses such a sense of =
gratitutde=20
for still being able to paint. I also ordered the book which Sax sells =
in the=20
same package...it is good too, but I can't remember if it mentions his=20
learning disability or not.

I watched a program on PBS about Rauschenberg recently. I believe they=20
mentioned that he is dyslexic. CL from PA

"Chuck Close: A Portrait in Progress, product # 586 287J and we have =
sold
quite a few. There is also a book called Chuck Close: Up Close product =
#572
496J $19.95. The set of both products #572 447J $44.95 The feedback we =
get
is good. Hope this helps. Judy McCracken
