Tactile Art as Gift for Students with Visual Impairments

Shout out to Professor Richard Curtis, who recently had his Thomas College Art students figure out how to make tactile images for the blind. He sent a box to the Academy for the Blind, full of mini canvases filled with line art done in puffy paint, glitter glue, and sand as a gift for my students. The assignment was great lesson in line, texture, problem solving, and some of his students even bothered to learn how to spell some Braille words. My students loved choosing a tactile treasure to take home.
