My Hobbies


Special Artistic Merit Awards

My name is Bryce Czekanski, I’m 15 years old, and I have Hurler-Scheie. Living with my disease gives me a lot of time to draw and make art. Every Tuesday I go up to the hospital for treatments for most of the day. This gives me lots of time to draw. I am also taking an art class in school which gives me even more time to draw everyday. The two pieces of art I’m submitting are ones I made in art class. The colored pencil one shows some of the other activities I enjoy doing in my free time. The stack of books shows my love for reading. Drawing has been great for me, it allows me to express myself and it passes a lot of time. I’m glad I’ve been given this skill and I hope to continue drawing.
