There is an internationally known school for the deaf here in Indianapolis
that has your answer. In my visits there, I have seen artwork displayed in
the hallways and know that they teach art there. This school receives
millions of dollars in donations from popular night-time host David
Letterman. Here is the address and phone number.

Indiana School for the Deaf
1200 E. 42nd St.
Indianapolis, IN 46205
