Children and the Creative Process.
Whitehurst, Keturah E.
This article briefly reviews some of the psychological research literature defining and assessing creativity, and examines such questions as: (1) Does creativity simply emerge as the expression of the genius of a gifted elite? (2) Can it be taught? If so, how? (3) What conditions foster creativity? (4) Is it related to intelligence and academic success? and (5) What are the personality traits of the creative person? It is suggested that we must be rescued from our mechanical condition in society's economic production in order to be restored to the human condition of self-esteem. "Creative education" must become the watch word for humanistic educators so people can find sanctuary in their own creativeness and in their ability to achieve harmony within themselves and to communicate that harmony to other cultures and other nations.
