For many years, one of the ways the National Federation of the Blind has promoted tactile access for the blind to art has been the Art Room and exhibits at our National Convention every year. As always, the art room will welcome aspiring and accomplished artists alike in Orlando. Drop-in activities are from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 4 and Thursday, June 5. Drop by to draw or sculpt on your own and with your friends. This year you can also get involved with a community art project led by Jenny Callahan. No skills required for the community project – just a willingness to take part..
But wait – thereâ€™s more!!
Artist-to-Artist Art Exhibit
