The authors share a view of learning as an imaginative process rooted in our common need to communicate and transform individual experience through the cultural lifelines of the arts.

Review:

"This is a wonderful book, with chapters by the top experts on Vygotsky and creativity. There are valuable insights for teachers of every arts subject: painting, music, writing, dance. Vygostky's first book was about psychology and the arts, and these chapters will re-awaken interest in this important area. Vygotsky's theoretical insights show why play and creativity are so closely related. This book is an important contribution to the growing area of studies of creativity and learning." --Keith Sawyer, Washington University in St. Louis, author of Explaining Creativity and Group Genius

"This very readable book explores major themes in the contemporary dialogue even as it brings to the forefront the many-faceted contributions of Vygotsky to our thinking about art, play, and meaning." -- --Maxine Green, Teachers College, Columbia University
