Eau Claire County boy wins art competition for visually impaired

Fall Creek (WQOW) – An Eau Claire County boy has won an award for the piece of artwork he painted without his sight.

Caden Drier, 10, from Fall Creek, entered his work in a competition called “Insights Art” for people of all ages with visual impairments.

Drier is blind. He lost his sight after a cancerous brain tumor. He entered the painting “The Lion with Pride.”

Drier used brown, yellow and orange paint for his lion and even learned how to make the lion’s eyes with the tip of an eraser.

He said, “it’s fun to have a chance to compete with kids like me.”

“The Lion with Pride” will be on display in Louisville, Kentucky next weekend.
