Purpose of Kit: Textured Graphic Art Tape provides a large collection of tactile strips/ "tape" in a variety of colors for the construction and adaptation of instructional and recreational materials for use by students and adults with visual impairments and blindness. The textured strips can be used by teachers and graphic artists to prepare tactile graphs, diagrams, mazes, flowcharts, etc., that require discriminable linear paths with distinct textures, borders, or line types (e.g., dashed, dotted). Some strips present a continuous line of raised circles, stars, squares, or triangles; the shapes, when cut apart as individual stickers, are useful as tactile point symbols or directional arrows. All of the textured strips are adhesive-backed for easy and convenient application. Students can also use the textured strips for marking and embellishing their own graphic material and artwork.
