“CreARTE” is a multiplayer board game designed as an assistive technology that seeks to promote social inclusion of both kids and adults with visual impairment while they learn about colors. Crearte is both a game and an educational system since it teaches a color coding method that like braille, has established a symbol for each color based on the primary colors, their association with everyday objects, and their combination. Introducing colors by touch will help the player become more adept in the ability to interpret touchable patterns; a very important skill for new braille learners. The game has been in use for the past three years at the local Public Library “José Felix de Restrepo”.
