LLS 1347 - Creativity

Credits: 3 hrs.
“We are all creative, but by the time we are three or four years old someone has knocked creativity out of us. Some people shut up the kids who start to tell stores. Kids dance in their cribs, but someone will insist they sit still. By the time the creative people are ten or twelve, they want to be like everyone else.”- Maya Angelou. Often, people do not think of themselves as creative because they are only familiar with narrow definitions of the word. You will engage in hands-on, minds-on activities that illustrate the processes and products of creative thought. By working in teams generating “problem lists” and displaying your proposed creative solutions publicly, you will develop skills in collaboration and communication while gaining knowledge of the importance of planning a logical workflow.
