While Maria, Rigoberto’s mom, is his constant companion and his ever vigilant voice, his thoughts and ideas are definitely heard through his artwork. Although an outpatient at Rancho since 2005, he recently began his art journey here in 2017 when he joined the visual arts program*. Rigoberto prefers painting his abstracts in watercolor or acrylics, and is continually inspired by his feelings and his surroundings, while he watches other artists closely and learns from their techniques. Painting gives Rigoberto confidence through his friendships and interactions with others (his colleagues have nicknamed him Picasso), it relaxes him and helps him improve his grip strength and dexterity, and it has given him the joy of having a second family.
*The year-round adult and pediatric patient art program is fully funded through the Rancho Los Amigos Foundation.
