“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” ~ Degas
When we do not have a particular disability, it is sometimes difficult to imagine what it must feel like for a person who does. For example, one of my sisters has dyslexia. Although it hasn’t stopped her from earning her PhD in Nursing and becoming a professor, I know that it has been a constant struggle. She tries to explain what it’s like, but I have a hard time imagining.
That is why I’ve been fascinated by this article from NPR called “Finding Words in Paint: How Artists See Dyslexia.” To see how these artists express their own struggles with Dyslexia through their art is eye-opening. It’s worth checking out this weekend and maybe even sharing with someone you know.
