About the Course
The potential for creativity—the act of making something new – lives in each of us. Most of us act less and less upon this potential with every passing year. Our own creativity becomes a memory—something we outgrew or lost along the way. If a child grows up believing in her own creative self, she will have a better chance of finding constructive outlets for creative energy in later years. The child's creativity will not be just a memory; it will be a valuable personal resource and something to nourish and to use every day.
