In the essay “Creativity in the Classroom” written by Ernest L Boyer, the essay talks about creativity in the classroom and what can affect or empower creativity to occur. At the beginning, the writer stated that if the students and the faculty did not work together to create a prosperous ambiance, and did not see that they are having an important thing to do, the effective education atmosphere will be minimized. Another point that the writer stated carefully was when the professor spoiled the book and the students did not react disappointed because they did not need to read the book they had the information’s that they need from the professor. Therefore, in my opinion, the writer point was that students need to get serious about their
In the context of creativity’s stated definition, we will proceed to group our arguments into three themes of factors: cognitive ability, expertise training, and environmental conditions. The human brain is highly adaptable and can continue to develop new cognitive abilities, even past adulthood (Norman, 2015). Proper cognitive expertise and training can help workers produce and operate in ingenious ways (Ginamarie, Lertiz & Mumford, 2004). Finally, the working environment can both motivate or stifle creative output. Managers can influence all three components: expertise, thinking skills, and motivation (Amabile, 1998).
For the entirety of the fall semester, I took on a project to create a three-page layout for a fictional campaign in National Geographic magazine about endangered species. The goal was to create different content for my portfolio, challenging my skills in photography and photo-manipulation. I transformed people into animals and used gel lighting and Photoshop to create my artwork (see Appendix A figure 1 & 2). At the end of the semester, I reviewed my completed pieces and two theorists best fit my creative process, Julie Burstein, and Teresa Amabile. Julie Burstein discusses the best way to foster creativity is by ‘letting go’ she outlines this in four lessons (Campbell and Dubois, “Artist Best practices” 25). These lessons include experiences, challenges, limitations and loss (Campbell and Dubois, “Artist Best practices” 25). While Teresa Amabile discusses how the theory of creativity is fostered through her componential model of creativity (Campbell and Dubois, “On theories of” 14). These include domain-relevant skills, creative thinking skills and motivation (Campbell and Dubois, “On theories of” 14). Both of these theorists go hand in hand providing me with the framework for my best work. This essay will discuss how Amabile’s theory for intrinsic motivation and Burstein’s lesson of experience and loss, align in my creative process to be conducive to my work.

Commercial success and true ‘artistry’ or creativity seem to be contradict with each other. However, I don’t agree this statement and it’s not correct at all. I’m going to use the Beatles, the musical Hair and Pink Floyd as examples (as they gained success in both aspects) to explain how these two elements can coexist in the following essay.
Creativity is an abstract concept that is crucial as part of our advancements of mankind whether that be in the scientific fields with new inventions and research or in the artistic fields with new paintings and amazing portraits, but most people do not understand that the gift of creativity can be a crucial source of innovative ideas. As a result of the need of creativity, schools must include creativity as part of the daily curriculum that students learn. Students already spent seven hours a day at school, exposing them to a class that helps them efficiently and correctly use creativity would be beneficial to not only students but to all members of society. Places of education such as high schools must include classes in creativity in order to create
The book Creativity. Inc. , by Ed Catmull with Amy Wallace, is the chronological journey of Ed Catmul and Pixar from the early days until today.

On Photography One of the latest buzzwords in business is creativity. There is no doubt that our world is changing quickly and we are constantly being asked to find solutions that are different, new and especially creative.
In the video “A Changing Culture of Creativity” by Howard Gardner, Gardner discusses the evolution; one could also say the possible devolution, of creativity in the world today and why we need to change the way we analyze. He points out that many young people have become followers in todays ever-changing technological world as opposed to the pioneers of creativity, like those we have seen in the past. Creativity needs to be nurtured and it must we must harness the use of the technology that connects us to do so.
Creativity to me it means a sense of individuality that makes you apart from other people or your ways of thinking and actions. that you have that others may not have and It makes you special. My creative side, I think I am very good at problem solving I often help people with problems and brainstorm and come up with solutions to their situations. a I feel like that's one of the strongest characteristics such as helping with things at home and talking to family and friends. Talk to friends about their problems and come up with ideas to make it better and solve the situation at the moment. Sometimes I have really good things to say and ways that can help out at the moment that could be really useful . Also, part of this reason is why I think I want to be a Psychologist. Creative thinking is one of the best things for either from a school assignment like a project to problem-solving with difficult situations which many would find very
In regards to creative expression, It means to represent oneself through culture or art. This can also be defined as an artifact only limited by your imagination and the requirements. During this artifact I was given the task of creating my own menu for a restaurant. This artifact was considered a creative expression because we got to design our own restaurant, including its name, foods and prices. Me and my partner got the chance to actually create our own restaurant that focused around Hispanic and Chinese foods.I am guessing that our spanish teacher wanted us to express our creativity in a unique way and see that we are capable of thinking outside the box. Through this projects I learned more about foods in different cultures and seeing
In the twenty-first century, one inhabits a world in which one must choose between academics and creativity. Unfortunately, it is arduous to be efficacious in either if both are not offered. Being in the middle of an economic crisis does no abet in the slightest. Art is becoming endangered outside of the educational system as well as within it. “Public Money is…drying up as states struggle with yawning budget deficits” (Wiggins). Lawmakers everywhere are threatening significant cuts in art funding (Hurley). Broadway productions, ballets, operas, and symphonies are languishing. Plays are being practiced and performed without understudies, which is a big “no-no” in the creative arts domain (Rourke 1).
Creativity to me means, the use of your imagination to create something using your original ideas. A creative skill I have that's important to me and is in my everyday life is drawing. I am always drawing things that pop up in my mind throughout the day from something I made up that I want to draw that challenges me or from a dream I had the night before. I like to draw realistic looking things like flowers or people, but my favorite thing to draw that I pretty much draw every day I get the chance to are eyes. I just love how there are so many different ways eyes look and can say so much about a person just by looking into them. I have started to draw the whole face instead of just the eyes and i'm getting a lot better at making them look
Being one of the key words for successful, “creativity” becomes increasingly vital in different industries to keep competitive within the region or over the world. As the Crafts Council of England stated, "There are few areas of life where the nation 's priorities for education, health, employment and industry are not dependent on the development and application of creative practical skills." (quoted in Joubert & Green, 1999). In order to be more competitive in the future cultural and economic field, UK government believe that “creativity can be developed” (ibid.) through creative education, which could help to inspire young people’s imagination, innovation, and interaction. However, creativity can be understood and carried out in diverse
What is the relationship between intelligence and creativity? In this essay I will explore the correlation between intelligence (IQ) and creativity (DT), and whether one is influenced or can be predicted by the existence of the other. The relationship between IQ (intelligence quotient) and creativity has been an anchor point for psychological research. Numerous amounts of psychologists have carried out research in order to find evidence to support this idea of a correlation or evidence to disprove the hypothesis that IQ and creativity could be related.
