3.2.1 Quote Me – Creativity

Jenna, The Sunshine Artist, has tagged me for the 3.2.1. Quote Me challenge started by Rory, A Guy Called Bloke and K-9 Doodlepip!, about creativity, one of my favorite topics! From making my own greeting cards, stories, clothes, gifts, being creative is one of the most rewarding endeavors I will ever embark in my life.

I really enjoy these quotes by Pixar!

As I ponder on the quotes below, I’ve realized that creativity is very difficult to measure in the classroom. If some people claim that they aren’t blessed with it, I wonder if some people can unlock the creativity within you. 🙂

      • True!… but there is a statistical ‘mean’ that a majority are not all that far from. 😉

        Maybe the ‘creatives’ are further from it than the rest of us? The ‘outliers’… At least in some respects?? 🙂

        • I had a professor also named Bob who chatted about these ‘outliers’. 🙂 Some who have plenty of innovative ideas.

          I recently watched a fascinating video by Sir Ken Robinson called “RSA ANIMATE: Changing Education Paradigms”. There was a section where he mentioned about how society tends to medicate the ‘creatives’. I wondered if the idiosyncrasies in these individuals make those near the mean highly uncomfortable to treat them this way?

          • I’d think you are right there .. it is inbuilt into human nature to want to belong – to be part of the crowd, primarily for safety. But there is conflict within us from this as we also have a need for individual identity and to stand out from the crowd. Those who stand out too much (in either direction) can make us, the majority, somewhat afraid/inadequate/resentful.
