Time For Art: Art Projects and Lessons for Students with Visual Impairments

by Gail Cawley Showalter

This simple manual gives some helpful suggestions for people who want to teach art to children who are blind or visually impaired. It also gives some suggestions on projects that the students can do. It is not intended as the "all around authority" on the topic but serves as a spring board into other projects and ideas. Topics and projects include, fake fossils, aluminum repousse, papier mache bowls, wire sculptures, and raised line drawings. Good book for anyone interested in ways to adapt lessons in art for learners with special needs. Also includes art projects which relate to science.
