Earlier this month the Royal Blind Learning Hub ran an Art for Children with Vision Impairment and Complex Needs course with expert staff from the Royal Blind School.

This event was free to any educators including teachers, support staff, classroom assistants and informal educators, who wanted to find out more about teaching vision impaired pupils.

Participants came away with ideas and guidance, including several examples of practical art activities which could be used with individuals and groups of pupils with vision impairment.

You can see some photos from the course below:

Feedback included:

"Hands on experimentation and learning strategies and techniques that I can take back to my classes."

"Will be using ideas with current VI pupils and sharing good practice with other staff."
