Description

Rita: Do we have any boxes?

Mom: Sure, Why do you need a box?

Rita: My teacher says I have to think outside the box!

Approaching her daily life with enthusiasm and a dry sense of humor, Rita rides public transit to her job working at a university coffee shop. She takes yoga and folk dance classes and enjoys drama and music at a day program, and she continues to practice using sign language. Rita’s great passion is making art. Here she shows her love for the world in fun and beautiful works of art.
