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