Artwork by boy with cerebral palsy tours nation

Alex McKay, 12, paints during his art class at Monart School of Art.

Not every artist can claim a national tour for their works, but Alex McKay, a 12-year-old artist with cerebral palsy, can say that of his drawing of a car in the "Celebrating Who I Am" exhibition. Painting is therapy and a creative outlet for Alex, his parents and teachers say. Alex, who uses a motorized wheelchair, has developed special techniques to compensate for muscle weakness while painting and drawing. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
