Welcome to our core creativity skills feature.
What are core creativity skills?
There’s four core creativity skills, which taken together can define the creative process:
- Problem Solving
- As skills for life, learning and work, and a higher order thinking skill, creativity skills are a responsibility of all. However without a clear understanding of what creativity skills are it can be difficult to recognise them and develop them.
- Sometimes people assume creativity is only about the expressive arts and whilst the permission to be creative has always sat well within these subjects,
- Creativity skills can be developed across all subjects and sectors and at any stage,.
- Research also tells us that different subjects define creativity very differently, and that men and women typically hold different definitions to each other.
