       The objective of the current research is to reveal the effectiveness of a program of plastic art activities based on the Schwartz model to develop the skills of multiple developmental intelligences that require the use of many mental, visual, auditory and physical skills; There is no doubt that one of the requirements for change in arts education is to prepare an individual capable of facing and solving his problems, especially the blind, and developing such skills for them, through the use of developmental educational programs prepared from contemporary theories and trends; The "Schwartz" model in thinking is one of the modern models in the educational field, which depends on the integration of higher thinking skills into the academic content to make the curriculum more vital, active and thought-provoking through the activities of the plastic arts, and the current research followed the semi-experimental approach on an experimental sample (27) of middle school students of the blind and their chronological age of 12-14 years old  from Al-Nour and Al-Amal School (preparatory stage) engineers for the academic year 2021-2022 AD Blind and the research used the scale of estimating developmental intelligences Multi-child (MIDAS) modified to become blind and through the application of the program proved its effectiveness through the presence of statistically significant differences in the averages of the scores of the scale of estimating multiple developmental intelligences for children (MIDAS) in favor of the dimensional application of a sample of the blind.
