During my stay at The Rochester Institute of Technology, I was introduced to the Deaf Community. With Sign Language relying on expression and gesture, I found myself wondering if my visual explanations might work for others as well.
During the 3 years I have studied Illustration at RIT, I have been actively working with visual translations for the Department of Access Services through NTID.
What is visual learning?
Art isn’t an accessory, and images aren’t for artists only. Art is communication, understood across cultures and continents, not as a caged commodity but as a language. Art gains value for the message it contains, a medium rather than a market. Take art out of the frame and use it, see if it works.
