Andre Johnson is a WTOC Top Teen. Andre Johnson is a WTOC Top Teen.

WTOC Top Teen award is becoming a family affair. Last year we honored Savannah Arts Academy student Andrea Johnson with the recognition. Now her younger brother Andre Johnson is following in her footsteps.

Andre isn't just known for being a good student, it's his art work that grabs most people's attention.

"It helps me express myself really as a child my dad he did it and as a kid I loved the way he expressed himself.drawing.and I just kind of fell in love with it," said Andre.

Many have fallen in love with his work, Andre has won many regional and national awards for his outstanding ability to express himself.

"I love portraits and I think that's my strength and I plan to do that for the rest of my life," said Andre. "I like rendering showing details and I really like sitting down and just getting into and making the nose, the lips mouth look this way."

Andre says it takes him about two week to finish his portraits, and art teacher Steve Schetski says it's always a pleasure having such a dedicated student in his class.

"It's fun having a student like Andre because he really loves what he is doing and so it's very easy to teach someone like Andre," said Schetski.

So it's no surprise that Andre is now a WTOC Top Teen.

"I'm grateful for the opportunity never thought this would come up so I'm grateful for it," said Andre.
