Katherine Trimm, Humble ISD teacher of visually impaired, started a community art club for visually impaired children called Creating with Blind Abandon. Trimm created the art club because she noticed art was not accessible for her students. The club meets on the first Saturday of every month at the Tullis Library in New Caney.
Most recently, the art club has been creating artwork to decorate a truck and trailer for the Houston Art Car Parade. Decorated musical instruments and embellishments were attached to the Creating with Blind Abandon trailer. The truck was also decorated to represent a seeing eye dog with large eyes and floppy ears. Club members and their family members rode in the trailer pulled by their “seeing eye dog” truck during the parade on April 14.
