Let's Celebrate Art

During the months of March and April each year, the South Carolina State Library Talking Book Services Department offers a fine arts creative outlet for blind and visually impaired students in our state. This year young artists submitted tactile pieces using ceramic, felt, cotton, paper, wood, metal, and more. It was difficult to choose the winners but here they are!
