Online Accessibility Training

Beyond Accessibility:
Think Universal

Your audience is larger than your think!

In learning about the tools available to create access to art, you may have found yourself thinking:

  • "I would enjoy touching a model or facsimile of a work of art."
  • "Props would be great to use with all my students."
  • "Sound and dramatization would help many students feel more engaged in learning about art, history, and literature."
  • "Verbal description would strengthen language skills for all my students."
  • "Verbal description would model observation skills during all my tours."

Yes, Yes, Yes! These approaches and tools were designed for audiences with visual impairments. But they can benefit people with other disabilities AND enhance programming for all your audiences.

Accessibility Tools that appeal to all of our senses and create an open and flexible environment allow for a broad range of learning styles, preferences, and interests and enrich the art experience for everyone.
