Visual Language, Verbal Description and Multisensory Strategies

Making art accessible to guests with vision loss

​​Visitors experience the rich museum environment in a variety of ways. In this workshop session we’ll explore ways to engage more than just the visual sense. Through presentation, exercises and discussion, participants will explore the benefits of descriptive language for all audiences, learn the purpose of more thorough description for visitors who are blind or have low vision, and discuss strategies for developing and facilitating multisensory experiences.
