I had a surprise visit from friend and artist Bob and Roberta Smith the other day.
We were connected in our childhoods but rarely get to meet these days living in different places.
It’s a shame because we have a common quest; our desire to get people to understand the importance of creativity in education.
People often respond to that idea with the question ‘What use is painting pictures in the world of employment?’ as if that were the only interpretation of creativity. It also misses the point; creativity isn’t restricted to painting and drawing, for goodness sake!
Creativity is primarily about thinking – creative thinking. Intelligent creative thinking.
Intelligent creative thinking is what enables us to lead our lives on a day to day basis.
Intelligent creative thinking enables us to find solutions, solve problems, rise to challenges and develop as people.
