Art in Action

So many of you know I make tactile art with the visually impaired.A year ago we had a camera man join us for a documentary piece and here it is.

If you look carefully at 3.06-3.11.That's me sharing my Wow piece with Camille,who is later seen making button flowers while she is being interviewed-a technique I had shared with her.
Yesterday as we left our regular class Camille stopped me and said she was still enjoying making button flowers.

Art really does make a difference

It's a great documentary Debs.
I hope it will make a good example for other cities to do these kind of activities. Everybody is having so much fun. It's graet to watch.

What makes this work is the unique partnership of Vision Loss Connections strong community and the art store.Having an accessible space is so important for this group.
It really helps to have a mix of sighted guides to support people.It really is fun and I feel privileged to be part of the group.

Anywhere that has an art space can support a group that can have this much fun.So take the video clip- share with a local groups and get something going.
