Learn Adaptive Techniques for Teaching and Making Art with Your Child who is Blind or Visually Impaired

- Susan LaVenture


NH Parent Connect hosted an online meeting to open up the conversation and explore together about adaptive and accessible strategies when it comes to making art and talking about it with your child. We learned about best approaches, inclusive tools, and ways to center the child’s perspective with new art experiences.

Our presenter, Sarah Coulter, is the Manager of School Tours and Youth Programs at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, NH. A native of New Hampshire, she has dedicated her work to creating accessible, memorable and transformative learning experiences within informal educational spaces. She graduated from The George Washington University with a degree in American Studies and has a Master’s degree in Museum Education from Tufts University.

Oftentimes parents, educators, and the community at large are not aware that children and adults who are blind or visually impaired can learn to create and express themselves through Art. We encourage parents and teachers to view the video of the meeting presentation “Adaptive Techniques for Teaching and Making Art” meant to inspire kids and families to be involved with Art!
