Today I am thankful for the opportunity to meet some really great people who are making an impact on the world, such as John Bramblitt. John Bramblitt is featured in another post last month too. He went to my school and lost his sight during college due to severe epilepsy. He really liked drawing but never considered painting. Once he lost his vision, he figured ‘why not?’ and started to paint and is absolutely incredible. I’ll include a few pictures below but I also want you to watch the video that I post. It’s different than the one in the original post. It not only touches on being a “non visual visual artist,” but also on some of the emotional aspects of going blind and art’s effect on him. My boyfriend and I are going to get to go to a workshop with him in a few days and we are very excited. My boyfriend is an art major and of course I’m visually impaired so this is right up both of our alley’s. Today, I am grateful for the opportunities to meet and learn from individuals like John Bramblitt.
