This article examines the possibility of using paintings that reflect the image of a blind person as educational content for the training of teachers of special and inclusive school. Foreign research, as well as sociological, cultural and historical analysis of literary sources and content analysis of thematic works of painting and graphics allow us to admit the possibility and significance of using this approach in the educational process. Most of the visual arts depicting the blind reflect the current attitude of society towards them and can influence society, creating both positive and negative stereotypes through specific artistic tools. However, in the pedagogical practice of higher education, the resource of art does not find sufficient reflection. The research results can be useful for the authors of modern teaching manuals that provide training for teachers of the defectological profile.
