[Art_beyond_sight_educators] ideas for individual creative activities

We have received an information request that I would like to get your help in answering. A woman with limited sight, no computer, and limited transportation called us and asked for ideas for "creative activities" she can do. She lives in a large house in a small town here in Indiana with no bus or taxi service. She says getting to some place where she could buy supplies might be difficult. She says she is isolated, and that sounds more than accurate.

Sharon has a degree in painting and printmaking from an era in her life when she had her sight. She is interested in any kind of arts, however, not just visual. So creative writing or music would be possibilities for her as well. Does anyone have some suggestions for her?
Thank you,
