Image descriptions are an artform. They are designed to provide information and context of the visual to a blind/ partially sighted person. Let's explore the importance of image descriptions and remove the intimidation factor in creating them. Amantea will present a frameowrk and lead you in putting it into practice. This workshop will help you describe your art on social media, in galleries, etc. Artists have the opportunity to impart specific meaning, intent and knowledge of their work, to add layers that make description rich and interesting for a blind audience.
Amy Amantea is an expert in all things description. As part of her daily work and lived experience, Amantea has spent the last 14+ years studying, developing, consulting on and practicing the art of image descriptions. As a blind person, Amantea sees visual art through your lens.
