Let’s get creative

BlankCanvas

At Elements, we consider creativity both a right and a privilege. Our students are encouraged to be creative every moment of the day, whether they are helping prepare a meal, or playing outdoors. But, of course, they have the most fun being creative when we present them with a blank canvas, and ask them to fill it with whatever they would like. They play in the garden, and use mud to decorate the walls. It’s all a bit messy but such fun. Muddy fingers = happy, busy minds.

After all, as Einstein said,
Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.

We have an exciting project coming up, that we will be introducing to you, each week.

Until then, if you are interested in understanding the connections between creativity, success and happiness, here are resources that we find helpful:
