“Creativity is not something gifted to the few. Were it so, we would all be the poorer. Rather, it’s a fundamental skill available to all. Thankfully, given this universality, creativity manifests itself in different ways in different people and in different contexts. Whenever we assemble, compose, construct, imagine, improve, organise, predict or produce we are creating. Opportunities, as well as preferences and aptitudes, dictate the form of its expression and extent of its development. The challenge for educators is to help all learners recognise the creativity within them and form the environment in which this creative potential can be nurtured and realised.”
