Teen Voices: Featuring Antonio B.

2016-17 Teen Winter Challenge Participant

Each month we spotlight a teen at CPL.

It looked as though Antonio B had recently visited the museums of Illinois’ Cantigny Park (http://www.cantigny.org/museums), where teens can envision the experiences of U.S. Army figures.

Using unique shading and experimentation with light, Antonio used an Artisto app to create some interesting 3-D like images he used to portray war, as well as inner battles and demons within one’s self.
