  16. 16. visual literacy (John Debes,1969)“Visual Literacy refers to a group of vision-competencies a humanbeing can develop by seeing and at the same time having andintegrating other sensory experiences. The development of thesecompetencies is fundamental to normal human learning. Whendeveloped, they enable a visually literate person to discriminate andinterpret the visible actions, objects, symbols, natural or man-made,that he encounters in his environment. Through the creative use ofthese competencies, he is able to communicate with others.Through the appreciative use of these competencies, he is able tocomprehend and enjoy the masterworks of visual communication.”Debes (1969b, 27)
