    This thesis connects the special education for blind and visually impaired with the artistic area. Two seemingly opposite areas, can together form an important part in the lives of blind and visually impaired children – tactile images. With a systematic review of the literature, I have tried to answer the questions, how tactile images were made and what are the techniques of making them. I wanted to examine the already existing theoretical rules of making or transmissioning visual images into tactile, and the advantages and disadvantiges of each individual technique. The first drawings made by man were found in caves and they're from the prehistorical times. First tactile images have emerged much later, which is described in the history of tactile images. With the emergence of tactile images, there also appears a question of tactile-kinesthetic perception and the use of tactile images, but also important is their correct design and analysis. Tactile pictures can be very helpful to the parents and teachers, which are teaching a blind or vissualy impaired child, because that way, it is easier to imagine tables, graphs, abstract concepts, maps, …They also have a very big impact on literacy development in the field of visuall impairment.
