  • Description

Though many of us were taught that only some people are creative, creativity is a basic human characteristic. Creativity is the act of doing something directed by an inner voice, not decided from the outside.The joy of being creative is in the process, the doing, more than in the product. Like many words in this ABC series, "creative" focuses on building a child's deep inner strength which is needed to help them navigate a still unjust world. In a society where children are almost always being evaluated, judged, and graded - creative work is playfuland richly rewarding.
