Art Program

In 2012, LAB launched a new program that at first caused quizzical expressions and raised eyebrows. What would cause such a reaction? It was the notion that people who are blind or visually impaired could create art.

From it's introduction, LAB's art program has been a hit with low vision rehabilitation clients.

Building confidence is just one reason an art program is valuable to people who have lost or are losing their sight. Art can be a way for people who are visually impaired to explore the physical, cultural, and intellectual world, leading to the development of socialization skills and greater self-esteem. Art also helps develop spatial concepts, which don't come as easily to people with blindness.

LAB's Art Program was implemented in 2012 with support from the Carolyn W. and Charles T. Beaird Family Foundation and The Community Foundation of North Louisiana.
