Art Education and Visual Impairment


When someone says "art," what do you think of? For many people, the answer likely includes some form of visual arts—paintings, photographs, sculptures, maybe even dance or writing. But art is all-encompassing, and it can and should be accessible to everyone, including people with visual impairments. Last week, Americans for the Arts, the nation's leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts in America, profiled a partnership between High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia, and Center for the Visually Impaired Georgia, which is bringing art and museum experiences to people with visual impairments. Head over to Americans for the Arts' blog to read more about this special partnership, and the impact it has on visually impaired people.
