One of the most essential aspects of a child's learning journey, is the discovery and application of one's creative abilities. Creativity is the most important mindset a child can develop and it is what helps connect the dots between school, career and life. It helps us find meaning and inspires questions previously ignored. Creativity is about expressing ideas and making sense of the world around us. It is much more than painting or drawing. If we want our children to learn from failure, be comfortable with ambiguity, challenge the status quo, we will need to develop their creative capacities to do so. Creativity requires practice. The less we engage our creative minds, the less we have. We need schools where creativity is not only valued, but celebrated as well. Creativity is the process of harnessing creative energy, to illuminate innovative ideas. In short, our future depends on the creative minds of our children.
