The aim of this research is to study the effects of the Living Together through Art model (LTTA model), a newly developed art learning model based on the concept of UNESCO's "Learning to Live Together", on promoting the consciousness of living together between Thai and migrant students which consisted of 4 core values: respect, acceptance, empathy and appreciate. The principle of the LTTA model was "Using art learning activities to encourage the ethnically-mixed students to express themselves, connect and collaborate with each other". The research was carried out using quasi-experimental methods. The trial was conducted at a primary school in Samut Sakhon, Thailand in the 2016 academic year. Forty-one ethnically mixed students form second and third grade classrooms were divided into an experimental group and a control group. Data collection consisted of a test, behavior observation, students' reflection and in-depth interviews. The data were analyzed using means, standard deviation, one-way ANCOVA, repeated ANOVA and content analysis. The data revealed that (1) the posttest mean score of the experimental group was higher than the pretest mean score and the score of the control group at a significant difference of .05 which remained stable after 4 weeks and (2) the frequency of desirable behavior which related to the core values increased and (3) students expressed more positive thoughts about themselves and others.
