Abstract

The article describes the theoretical and practical questions that rise by including blind and partial sighted students at an art academy. Several examples are presented, like the painter Jonathan Huxley, who studied at the Royal Academy in London or the scluptor Flavio Titolo, who did his art program at the University of the West of England in Bristol. The main theoretical questions go beyond an interpretion of the arts as visual or merely conceptual, and the practical approach includes haptic techniques and sensibilities which might otherwise be none discovered.
