Angel Boy Art: Special Art by Special Young Artists
“Every letter makes a sound, ‘A’ says, ‘Ah,’” is a lesson you will learn from Wahoo High School Senior Evan Callan. Callan, who has autism, is a student in Ms. Abbie Huenink’s Classroom.
“A” is for “Art” And our own AmAzing EvAn CAllAn hAs his own website! EAch of you hAs A chAnce to buy his remArkAble Artwork!
Callan is an exceptional artist, and thanks to Angelboyart.org, he is able to have his artwork displayed, and make a profit doing what he loves.
The foundation has three main goals:
1. Help children with special differences flourish, communicate, and express themselves through art.
2. Raise money for children with special differences and their families by selling their art.
3. Increase public awareness about children with special differences, and break down the stigmas surrounding children with special differences.

“Angel Boy Art has been such a blessing! We have finally found a vocation that encompasses all of Evan’s talents! It has been a rewarding journey for me to see Evan grow into a published artist!” Huenink commented. “Evan has a hard time parting with his artwork, so Lynae (Evan’s mom) and I explained to him one day what Angel Boy Art was all about, hoping to get a better idea of whether or not he would be interested in submitting his artwork. He was skeptical at first, but things really turned around when we told him it was going to be like ‘Evan’s YouTube.’”
