Reflection on the Reading

Collaborative art-making can engage multiple persons. Collaborating with peers helps to develop a deeper understanding of one's art style and preference. By learning to effectively work with each other and to problem solve together, collaborative art-makers develop a life skill called teamwork. I agreed with the point in the article that all elements in the environment should be participating in the activity. After reading the article, I began to ponder the pros and cons of collaborative art-making. I asked myself several questions such as How has collaborative art-making influenced other cultures? What challenges may arise when a group of people of various ethnicity's, social class, age, religious preference and cultural barriers are asked to engage in collaborative art making? I believe that a cross-cultural collaborative art-making experience can build social skills, develop leadership qualities, and a healthy awareness of a diverse artistic community. ftaylor. 08
