Young people will be inspired by the story of Louis Braille, who was only 12 years old when he began work on the writing system that changed the lives of blind people all over the world. Workshop attendees will learn the basics of Louis Braille's alphabet and practice writing on a braille slate and a braillewriter.
Advanced students will learn more about braille contractions and whole word signs, as well as how to write music and do math with braille. Participants may attend one session, two sessions or all three! The sessions, which are best for children ages 8-14, will be June 15, July 13 and August 10, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
