Why Creative Education is Important for Kids

The word “creativity,” in our society, tends to be applied to artistic endeavors. But divergent thinking is an essential part of everyday life. When a kindergarten figures out that he/she can climb a strategically placed chair to reach a cookie on the kitche, he/she has engaged in highly creative problem solving .

“We all have creative potential,” says Mark Runco, Ph.D., director of the University of Georgia's Torrance Center for Creativity & Talent Development. “Our job as parents and teachers is to help kids fulfill it.”

Creativity skills help kids to be:

Motivated and ambitious for change

Confident at their capabilities

Able to Improve knowledge

Able to transfer their creativity skills to other contexts

Able to lead and work well with others Clear vision
