University of Michigan Art and Design students help to share joy of creating with visually impaired
It began as a series of annual workshops for K-12 students who were visually impaired to introduce them to art, and to help them experience the joy of creating.
That was 15 years ago. Those workshops became engagement courses where University of Michigan Art and Design students worked closely with people who are visually impaired.
Bringing the low vision and sighted communities together to discover the joy of creating art was the idea of internationally renowned ceramic artist, Sadashi Inuzuka. He is the Arthur Thurnau Professor at the Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design at the University of Michigan, and he joined us to discuss the program.
