China's blind painters

For 40 years, Zeng Bailiang has been teaching the blind to paint using their sense of touch.

    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.
