Publisher Description

When Tim Lefens walked into the Matheny School in New Jersey to show slides of his paintings, his one-hour visit became a life-changing experience. The students he met had severe physical challenges: only one of them could talk, none could walk, and all lacked the use of their hands. As a painter facing his own gradual loss of eyesight, Tim had come to fully appreciate the power of art, and he was determined to enable the students to paint despite their physical limitations.

Lefens created breakthrough techniques for these students that gave full, exacting control of the creative process. Flying Colors, an immensely inspiring story about leaping over obstacles, reveals the passion and determination of one man, his student-artists, and their emergence together from a virtual silence to luminous expression.

Quotes

  • “Filled with heart-touching anecdotes of inner strength and rising to exceed expectations, Flying Colors is an enthusiastically recommended addition to personal and community library audiobooks CD collections.”

    - Wisconsin Bookwatch
  • “Grover Gardner…infuses the story with Lefen’s passion and creates well-developed voices for the secondary characters. This upbeat, dramatic story of overcoming odds is a day-brightener listeners shouldn’t overlook.”

    - AudioFile
  • “This book is the inspirational story of the power of art to change lives. Gardner’s reading is just as inspirational he even gets sound effects into the story. After listening to Flying Colors, you will never see a person in a wheelchair in quite the same way.”

    " I read this one a couple of years ago. Good story of a teacher who fought the system on behalf of a group of (disabled) students, who weren't in a great position to do so themselves. "
