Helping Color Blind Art Students
The art room is typically a place of refuge for all students to feel like they belong, and have success in creation. This isn’t always the case for color blind students. Being color blind can bring on a lot of anxiety in a subject that places so much emphasis on color. A color blind student in the art room may begin to dread and even hate projects. Memorizing the color wheel isn’t a very fun task, either. There must be a happy medium!
Although the color blind students that I’ve had were quite mild and a non-issue in the art room, I know there are other art teachers out there who have taught students with severe color blindness and may have some creative solutions for others who may have a student who is difficult to reach in this area.
Any creative adaptions or modifications you’ve made for color blind students in your art room?
