Our Approaches to Developing Creativity in Education
Stimulating and Rewarding Curiosity and Exploration Photography Lesson Students are asked to go out and explore their environments to capture elements and principles of art created by nature.
Encouraging Confidence and a Willingness to take Risks Jewelry Lesson As a beginning jewelry project students are asked to describe through jewelry design the physical and behavioral characteristics of a specific animal.
Providing Opportunities for Choice and Discovery Drawing and Painting Lesson As the semesters progresses each lesson taught opens more opportunities for students to explore materials and techniques. Students are able to choose what kind of materials and techniques they want to use to evoke a viewer response.
Transcending Traditional Ideas Ceramic Lessons Students explore different time periods and communicate what they have learned in a 3-D format.
Graphic Design and Illustration Establishing Purpose and Intention As designers, students need to produce creative solutions based on client needs such as; logos, advertisement, posters and other commercial design. Students work with concepts involved in developing designs from inception to presentation, utilizing both traditional media and industry based computer software.
Focusing on Mastery and Self-Competition Portfolio Assessments In Advanced Placement Studio students are expected to formulate an area of artistic and thematic interest. In this theme they must create 12 artworks that are increasingly more sophisticated both in technique and idea.
Researchers have found that creativity in schools is important because technology is advancing our society at an unprecedented rate and creative problem solving will be needed to cope with these challenges as they arise. In addition to helping with problem solving, creativity can also helps students identify problems where others have failed to do so.
