Ink and Wash Painting for Children with Visual Impairment
Shih, Chih-Ming; Chao, Hsin-Yi
British Journal of Visual Impairment, v28 n2 p157-163 2010
Five children with visual impairments received instruction in drawing, using ink and wash painting and calligraphy techniques. A special system developed by a blind Taiwanese Chinese calligrapher, Tsann-Cherng Liaw, was used to help the children orient and refine their work. Children's performance on simple drawing tasks was compared before and after introduction of Liaw's technique. The children were also interviewed about the effectiveness of the technique. The results suggest that the technique has useful applications in art education for the visually impaired. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
