Review:

"Art, Community and Environment is a necessary addition to transformative art education libraries. No other book so richly brings together detailed descriptions and captivating images of community-based projects that exemplify the relationship between making environmental art, creating aesthetic experiences and embodying the essence of place. This relational space calls artists, community members, educators and learners to engage with the environment ethically, ecologically, and creatively. For editors Coutts and Jokela, community-based art practices are founded upon participation, engagement, collaboration and empowerment. Every chapter illustrates these notions by pursuing dialogical practices within community contexts and thus portrays how community art energizes a strong sense of agency among participants. Formal and informal art education contexts that pursue the goals laid out in this book will most certainly be transformative for all those involved."-Rita L. Irwin, University of British Columbia -- Rita L. Irwin

"I highly recommend both for teacher education and fine arts education classes in higher education."- Rita L. Irwin, Studies in Art Education
