Art resources for blind and partially sighted art students

I will definitely be using some of these resources in my lessons. I love the idea of listening to an audio description of a piece of art with a class and having them interpret it into a piece of visual art. Also, using audio clips as inspiration for making art is a great idea, you could even record your own sounds around school and create art based on those.

Art UK have created 25 audio descriptions of sculpture pieces around the UK

Tate have a similar resource here, including primary school classics such as Matisse’s The Snail

Another great resource from Tate, using sound to inspire artwork!

An organisation called Living Paintings have a lot of content and some great resources – including these touch to see paintings

One for the iPads or phones, this is an app where users can play with sounds and patterns in creative ways
