Interesting article for those art teachers who have or will have visually
impaired students.


Art is an important but often challenging subject for blind and visually
impaired students. However, the absence or restriction of sight should not
limit individuals in their study and appreciation of the arts. Instead
students should be provided with a variety of experiences to make art
interesting and meaningful. This curriculum will explore the many obstacles
visually handicapped individuals encounter as they try to understand and
enjoy art. It will provide information on how to ensure that these students
have the same or similar opportunities as their sighted peers.
