    You could make sculptures or reliefs?

    cooking.. sensory and tactile art
    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    Sculptures, of course.

    Maybe paintings with paint laid on really thick in a pattern? I'm sure that the blind people enjoy art too...I enjoy some music even though I'm deaf.

    hmm! good ideas! i was thinking you know how light waves are like soundwaves at higher frequences? this might not work for blind people for for the colorblind, maybe there is a way to allow colorblind to see a painting through converting the light frequencies of color into sound waves??

    Sorry to go all science on you, but sound waves are differences in the pressure of the air, whereas light is waves in the electromagnetic field. Light is not just sound waves with higher frequency, but a completely different phenomenon.

    I'm sorry, but this is one of the stupidest posts I've seen in a long time.

    As Serpian mentioned, entirely different phenomena.

    Sound is vibrations in mass, light is waves in electromagnetic radiation.

    Even if they were remotely related, converting colors into sound? And somehow these sound colors fill in the missing spots in colorblind people's visible spectrum? What the hell? This is one of the worst examples of fridge logic I've seen since "Fundies say the darndest things".

    Gee, that was mean to say, evilagram. Serpian did give a good explanation anyway.

    LRomel, I recall seeing this material that was raised when a person grazed over the surface with a sharp object. I watched a boy that was totally blind run his fingers across the lines. One could make pictures that way. And of course, the other ways mentioned are also great ideas!

    That was really unnecessary, evilagram..
    How a bout a really dynamic, textured sculpture? Sculpture has been mentioned, but I think something with a lot of protrusions would be really interesting..
