I think that collaborative art is difficult for students when on a small-scale level. Murals are huge and multiple students can work at once, but small projects, like 3-D printing, are not as easy. Instead, each child being able to work on ideas that work together but aren’t one item would work best. I also thing that collaborative plays or songs would be easier to create in groups than physical objects. I think that community organizations would be great to collaborate with to help the students expand their minds and then also learn to work well with others. In elementary school, there was a traveling art program that came into schools with lessons on Ancient China and Egypt that used art to teach. I remember how fun it was to take a break from classroom instruction and be able to learn through art.
