Brian Halley - Fresh Juice; Encouraging and Fostering Creativity in Education
We were all born to create. From the time we were small, we actively used our imaginations as we thought up impossible ideas and learned by exploring our world. However, for most of us that creative fire was extinguished at some point on the elementary school conveyer belt. Creativity is undervalued in traditional schools and often discouraged altogether. Adults educated in the conveyer belt model often struggle with right-brained thinking skills that were stifled at a young age. Now, faced with trying to give our children a different kind of education, we find ourselves faced with problems that we don’t know how to fix, causing frustration and reverting us back to our conveyer belt training. Come and learn how to exercise your right-brain muscles, tap back into your natural creative flow, and find a balance in your homeschool between data & skills and intuition & imagination. Find confidence in your creative capacities to solve any problem, teach with inspiration, and foster creativity in your children.
