Teaching Other Teachers

Ever wonder how blind kids make and share art?  I had the honor of teaching a workshop today at Florida Art Education State Conference titled “Art Beyond Sight- Teaching Empathy Through Art.” Art teachers learned how people who are blind make and share art. #FAEA18  

In this workshop, teachers explored strategies to teach empathy to their sighted students by giving them opportunities to experience how it might feel to have low or no vision. Workshop participants learned ways to provide unique experiences for their own students, allowing them to explore art, make art and share their art using the sense of touch.
