here a few questions from art:21 (part of their teaching with contemporary art resources) inspired by a conference at the guggenheim called thinking like an artist: creativity and problem solving in the classroom.
- what is creativity?
- what does creativity have to do with education?
- why design? (i.e. asking questions and solving problems.)
- why does creativity matter beyond the arts and beyond the classroom?
- what comes next? (i.e. creativity and the future of education.)
i love joe fusaro's response (at the art:21 blog) to the first question: what is creativity?
creativity is the ability to see and craft possibilities, and to give these possibilities form or a venue for expression and understanding.
what would your answer(s) be?
