This is what I found when I did a search on google TEACHING THE BLIND ART

What does the blind students IEP or 504 objectives state? She should have a
medical IEP/504.Your local/state education agency should send an expert on
teaching the blind to help your. You should qualify for extra funding and
appropriate tools to teach this student that could also benefit your other
students. A lot of museums have art teaching resources, packets and
tools -art for the blind.

Teaching Art to the Blind / A Study of Chairs
by
Joanne R. Pompano

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.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Curriculum
Developed for students in middle and high school, this unit will assist
visually impaired and blind students in their efforts to explore, analyze,
and enjoy all types of art. In addition, this curriculum will assist
teachers in modifying lessons and providing experiences that will allow
students with limited or no vision to use their remaining senses to gain
information about art. It may also be of benefit to art museums in aiding
handicapped students in their effort to experience art through alternate
means.
