Editorial Reviews


Making Art Together is a book that is both practical and revolutionary. Using the latest knowledge on holistic learning, Cooper shows how an art project can educate on a multitude of levels and unify classrooms and whole communities. Among other things, the book is a kind of bible of differentiated instruction, guiding the reader through the process of making art that challenges and appeals to many different learning styles. We also see how collaborative art-making can teach the democratic importance of mutual understanding and respect and serve as a source of great pride for individuals and communities. Making Art Together should be required reading for all elementary and secondary school teachers.—John Laughton, composer, professor, and former dean, College of Visual and Performing Arts, University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth

"Making Art Together offers a highly innovative approach to a very modern and important subject. Mark Cooper and Lisa Sjostrom have done an amazing job of making collaborative community art fun, instructive, and accessible. Every teacher, artist, or parent should have this book for their work with kids."—Henry Horenstein, professor of photography, Rhode Island School of Design, author of Beyond Basic Photography

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a high school art teacher and love this book! There are many great ideas for all ages, and even the ones for younger ages can be easily adapted for older students. I am a huge fan of collaborative projects and this book helped me introduce collaboration to students who were not accustomed to the concept.
