One Community Strategies resident’s artistic talent is on full display at his West Boylston home.

Dan’s vibrantly colored paintings and drawings line the walls of his room and the area outside the staff office. Creating art is fun, he says, and it helps keep him calm and busy.

He especially enjoys using his artwork to bring joy to others, personalizing his work and giving it as gifts to staff and his family.
