    Utopian setting, but I’ll create my own plan…
    I really love the book. Its a great resource for future research I want to do in arts education, however as a critique I must say is that the school and students chosen are not an honest representation of the arts programming in this this country. I love that they chose a utopian set of teachers and students, but that still leaves me to see how this process/ belief system/philosophy will work in my setting–alternative education. Where in reality I have kids who hate art, sit on their phones, are angry at the world, have anger management issues, etc. etc. In some ways the book reminds me of PBIS–all the samples are of the students/communities that are “wanting” to participate. I guess I will just do my own research on the poor, disenfranchised communities that need the knowledge of the 8 habits of mind–because I think those elements are spot on with what we need as creative people–and what we do in our creative processes. I know that my students, who are the lowest of the low, can definitely benefit from the habits. I will have to create a plan that will support programs with no money, no support and few great teachers that have to run a program literally alone. Because I know there are great teachers, teaching artists and leaders out there, that would like to implement this thinking in their own programs but really do not know how to even start as they are overwhelmed with all the demands of their job.

    Great read for Art Teachers!!!
    Excellent book in terms of content! I recommend for any art teachers out there trying to incorporate the Studio Thinking and Studio Habits of Mind into their art curriculum.This book is extremely helpful and full of insights. I received the book quickly and in great condition.

    Well-researched erudition. Badly written.
    The content of this book is erudite, well-researched and insightful. However, I wish the authors had chosen to write it in slightly more accessible language. The use of contorted and complex phraseology often seems to have been used just to demonstrate the authors’ command of language rather than clarity of communicating their ideas.

    Great research
    This book presents exciting conclusions based on solid research. The information in it should be useful to those who want to show how important art education is, and it also is useful as a tool to shape an art curriculum. I used it as the core of a workshop I presented to art teachers on behalf of ArtAchieve.

    Very Relevant.
    This book was very relevant to my research in encouraging studio habits of mind in the classroom.
