A professor at the University of Michigan's School of Art and Design, Inuzuka has a passion for working with the visually impaired, especially children.  Inuzuka is legally blind, but one would never know by watching him move through a room.  His passion is clay.  He was inspired when he encountered Japanese educator Yohei Nishimura’s book about his decision to teach clay modeling to blind and visually impaired children.  As a visually impaired person he was inspired to develop clay workshops for Detroit area youth.  Every year, these workshops grow with the support of U of M”s School of Art and Design and student volunteers.  A dozen or so middle and high school students got to sculpt and mold blocks of clay into whatever they desired.  “The only rule is that there are no rules,” exclaimed Inuzuka at the beginning of the workshop.
