    Zeng Bailiang teaches his pupils to use their sense of touch to create works of art.

    He says he was inspired by watching a young blind orphan draw in the sand. The boy vividly described a red worm with black eyes and feet.

    Zeng's classes are giving some a renewed ability to cope in their daily lives.
