ID : 14863   
« back to classes page
This course defines creativity and why it is important for children to be able to be creative through a variety of ways and in many different situations. It will examine the role aesthetics plays in creativity and compare and contrast creativity and divergent thinking with conformity and convergent thinking.  Possible barriers to creativity will be presented.  The course will also include how art fosters child development and the development of positive self-concept in children.  Both the ways parents and teachers help children develop creativity and enhance children's creative expression will be addressed. Classroom environments, attitudes of openness, acceptance and encouragement that allow for creativity will be discussed.
