Making 3D art with blind and partially sighted people

Making 3D art with blind and partially sighted people

Wednesday, May 5, 2021

Christel de Buyser organizes workshops in The Netherlands for blind and partially sighted people (these are also often young people). Together they create 3D art during these workshops. The Royal Talens Foundation made a donation for the workshops, so that blind and partially sighted people find their way to 3D art making.

Experience of a participant

Patricia was one of the participants. She was asked by her visually impaired friends to paint with Christel and thought: “Yes, then I have to paint there. I am anything but creative. What am I supposed to do there?” Yet, Patricia came along and she really liked it and relaxe. Patricia has had 3% vision all her life and never imagined she could do something like this. “It has been really good for my confidence, because I really thought I would never be able to make something fun like this,” says Patricia.

Our support

At Royal Talens Foundation, we think it is great that we can also support these types of projects! View the beautiful 3D artworks below.
