Teaching art to a legally blind student


Date: Tue Sep 25 2001 - 12:43:53 PDT

I am teaching a 5th grade student who is legally blind. She can read, but
must hold any object 1 inch from her left eye in order to do so. She does
not have good peripheral vision, and must pass the object in front of her
face in order to see it all. Fifth graders, according to the curriculum,
must learn value and gradation and 2 point perspective. I am having a
hard time finding appropriate activities for her. Does any one have any
suggestions for activities or reference materials that would help?
