CSDB Mentoring Program
The Youth Services team at the Colorado Center for the Blind and CSDB principal Jamie Lugo have been collaborating over the last several years on a monthly mentoring program. Starting this 2019 – 2020 school year a more robust and fulfilling, Mentoring Program has been offered to a wider range of Blind students. Director of Youth Services Martin Becerra-Miranda, along with four student mentors have been traveling to the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind on the first Wednesday of every month to work with Blind students ranging in age from 5 to 18 years old.
The purpose of the mentoring program is to provide blind students with positive adult role models and to instruct in the areas of Communication, Reading, Career Education, Employment/College Preparation, Independent Living Skills, Recreation, Problem Solving, Self-Advocacy, & Social interaction.

Hey, for our blind youth and their families who were planning to come to tomorrow's tactile art exhibit at the Access Gallery opn Santa Fe Drive, it's been cancelled.
Or rather, postponed.
The Santa Fe Art District is scaling back on activities out of an abundance of caution over COVID-19, so the event will have to be held after Corona Virus concerns subside. We'll keep you informed. Let's all hope that happens soon.
The Colorado Center for the Blind
Who? Blind students of all ages, families and teachers
Where? Access Gallery, 909 Santa Fe Dr, Denver, CO 80204
When? Friday, March 13, 2020 from 3:00 – 7:00 PM.
You are invited to come experience tactile art made by blind students at the Colorado Center for the Blind. Emily vonSwearingen, teaching artist, collaborated with students at the Colorado Center for the Blind to create tactile based, mixed-media art projects. Students ages 5 - 12 years old created hot glue paintings on wood with tactile shapes. Students ages 13 - 18 years old created tactile paintings by cutting shapes from balsa wood, then collaboratively painting with the teaching artist by mixing textures and wood carving. They also created 3-D sculptures by attaching screws to a centered foundation then threading and attaching mixed-media materials to create artwork that can be experienced by sighted and non-sighted viewers. (You are welcome to touch the artwork).

These projects were funded by Denver Arts and Venues: Imagine 2020 with The Art Garage. This exhibit is made possible through Access Gallery and the Colorado Center for the Blind.
