Visual Arts for the Visually Impaired: Drawing for Blind Students - Tools and Techniques
All students are entitled access to the full range of the general education curriculum. Unfortunately, children with visual impairments are often excluded from instruction in the visual arts due ot the perception that the media and materials are not appropriate for them. This webinar series will provide information on how to make learning in the visual arts accessible and meaningful. The focus of this session will be on the how and why of drawing with students who are blind, taught as a discreet skill in art class and integrated into lessons in the general education curriculum.
