Art Education for the Blind

Log Number: MP-00-07-0025-07

Art Education for the Blind (AEB) will complete the production and online launch of its "Handbook for Museums and Educators," a practical guide designed to facilitate the process of creating accessible programming for people with visual impairments or other disabilities. AEB will work with over ten museums to pilot and evaluate tools involving the development of accessible art education programs, disability awareness training for museum staff, and the creation of employment opportunities for persons with disabilities. Available both online and in CD format, the handbook's multimedia features will offer effective, user-friendly teaching tools, enabling users to select, download, and customize information and components most pertinent to their institutions' needs.
