Explore the beauty of art through touch - Workshop on the technique and material used for tangible reproduction
Art is not just created for visual enjoyment. We can explore the beauty of art through touch and other senses. ADAHK’s art accessibility service centre organized a 12-hour workshop on using different materials to create touchable paintings from 19 April to 20 April. We invited Kim Crowell, who came from Arkansas, US and currently works in the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, to share her expertise in developing interpretive materials including tactile and multi-sensory materials for people with disabilities. Kim dedicates her work in enhancing the inclusive experiences for a diverse audience at the Museum. The workshop featured heavily on the tips and techniques of creating touchable paintings for instance image scaling using Microsoft Paint, learning different types of materials that could be used in tangible reproduction.
