Good morning!

I have a book titled "A Brush with Darkness: Learning to Paint After
Losing My Sight" by Lisa Fittipaldi. It came out in 2004.

Please note that I said I have it, not I've read it. It could be
Insightful.

I just went back to the first day of kids yesterday and I'm amazed that
I could find anything this morning!

Subject: [teacherartexchange] mixed classes

this is directed to Debbie,
I am entering my second year of having a legally blind student.With
corrected vision she is 20/400/ She will be blind very soon. The loss
of
sight is pretty much of a medical mystery. Even though I teach a mostly
visual class she signed up for Art 2.
I am directing this to every one. It will be an interesting year. I
would
like start a strand of how this works in other peoples classes. Are
there
any art teaching texts for teaching one blind student in the midst of 20
sighted?
Currently I make all handouts point 24, she sits in front of the t.v.
for
videos. I have alternative assignments for she when we do still lifes.
What was difficult last year was she was placed in the period 7 yahoo
art
one class full of students who really had issues.
She really doesn't care much for clay. However the reality is when her
sight goes entirely, the concept of drawing and painting is going to
change.
We do have a team, and things like the text on tape, and an expert is
available.
