Blind Kids Can Paint with New Invention

Ad Feedback

A blind artist in Louisiana is using a special technique to help teach blind children to paint.

Ricky Trione lost his sight 11 years ago, but he didn't let that stop him from painting.

Instead, he developed a textured color wheel. Now, he travels around the nation teaching others to paint and draw by feel.

"You can feel your colors and pretty much get into it. And you know you know exactly what colors you're doing, because of the fact that you set it up a certain kind of way and you can pretty much mix your colors into whatever you want your painting to be," Lenron Brown, a young artist, said.

"It was kind of relaxing and I got to be creative and I got to use my imagination, which I really like to do because I have a really really big imagination. I always want to use it whenever I can," artist Krysta Aymond said.

"It was a lot of fun, although some people can't see it. Just because I can't see it, makes it mean that much more," Jodi Comeaux explained.

Trione also does art presentations for students who aren't visually impaired.
