WHY DO WE NEED CREATIVE LITERACY?
DEVELOP CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS THROUGH CREATIVITY
Creative thinking is an important skill to have in the twenty-first century where we face an increasing degree of complexity, change, and uncertainty. We are required to keep thinking of new perspectives to problem-solving and be comfortable navigating through ambiguity and uncertainty to find new solutions. The need for creative skill is now more important than ever!
Creative literacy in adults
Adults usually stop being creative when it is they who need it the most! Learning about artistic processes helps cultivate in each individual a fertile imagination, emotional intelligence, and a capacity for critical reflection.
Creative literacy in young people
Arts for kids helps them navigate the world better by learning to communicate and express. Arts for older kids helps build awareness of cultural practices and art forms, strengthens personal and collective identities and values.
