What does it mean to be creative?


Creativity is a skill that can be developed & a process can be managed, which begins with a foundation of knowledge, learning a discipline, and mastering a way of thinking. It helps us to understand and also to discover and enjoy.

Creativity is not just about creating. It is what happens when you create, usually something unique and worthwhile. It requires practice to develop the right muscles, and a supportive environment in which to flourish. There’s definitely something going on in our brains that makes it all possible to create something from nothing.

Why is Creativity Important for a child?

Seeds of creativity live in everyone. You as parents are kids’ first and lifelong teachers. You can nourish sprouting imaginations into strong, growing creative minds.

  • Creating art expands a child’s ability to interact with the world around them, and provides a new set of skills for Self-expansion & communication.
  • Encourage your children to try new, unique ways of doing things. Don’t expect their artwork to look like samples others have made. Encourage your kids to come up with their own way to do crafts.
  • Build your kids’ confidence in their own creative abilities. If they ask you to make it for them, reply that you’d love to see what they create. Children’s fresh and unique styles should be valued.
  • Encouraging your child’s creativity can be simple and easy to do and fun for everyone.

Where does creativity exist within the brain?

Creativity doesn’t belong to any single part of the brain, but instead exists as many different parts of your brain working together to create new concepts or to shape and understand mental constructs as they relate to the real world.

Can Creativity be taught?

Creative ideas are the ones that are both good and novel. Not all ideas are good ones, of course, some are the inverse. Some ideas are downright impossible to convey, or make real. So it’s a concept which can be learned by learning and applying creative thinking processes. Be passionate about what you are doing because passion is one great force that unleashes creativity.

Creativity is a great motivator because it makes people interested in what they are doing. Creativity gives hope that there can be a worthwhile idea. Creativity gives the possibility of some sort of achievement to everyone. Creativity makes life more fun and more interesting. -Edward de Bono
