For Visually Impaired

Initiated in 1997, our tactile art programs offer inclusive learning experiences about art for the visually impaired and blind community. We offer customized programming for different communities as well as our core program, Can You Feel Me?

Can You Feel Me?

Since very few art institutions and organizations offer programming that provides meaningfully inclusive art education for the visually impaired, it is important to us to make this community a priority. Can You Feel Me? introduces people with low vision or no vision to visual art concepts that can be explored through touch, with the goals of stimulating creativity and the imagination, and encouraging socialization through discussion of art objects. This five week workshop includes a tactile exploration of sculpture and textured wall pieces, and culminates with a mural project containing elements of touch, sound, and smell.
