Word this hits home.. 'children are born artists, the problem is remaining one thoughout adulthood. '-Picasso

I hope i quoted that right, but the point being, i think, is that we are being educated out of our creativity /imagination. This was funny, but there is a sobering undertone...we are being taught with a type of broken or restrictive framing. Teaching limitations cramps the child like boldness, inherent early on, which keeps us in a loop of failing before we start mentality. Good ted talk! Feel me twin... :D
we are, what we allow to occupy us..

I feel like I was lucky in this respect... My mother, being an artist herself, was very encouraging of me participating in the arts. Also, the school I went to for junior and senior high had a very good selection of arts classes and a large building dedicated to the vocational arts. While there was certainly still a much higher value put on things like math, and the standard classes, I never felt like my love for the arts was marginalized at school or at home... at least until I started wanting to explore things outside of my mothers interests and things the school didn't teach. I did go straight into college for graphic arts... All that being said though, I definitely agree with what was said in the talk.

I'm slowly working my way through them... luckily I've seen a lot of them already over the years. ;)

I think it is teachers that mainly kill creativity. If a teacher can't accept that all questions have multiple valid responses...then they are not promoting individual learning practices or creative thinking. (Math may be the exception). As far as the structure of school and classes or knowledge offered, it's a bit shit all around. The fact is most jobs need you to be able to function in structured way of doing things that do not allow creativity. That is what schools think they are fostering. Again, you hear "think outside the box" almost as often.

Schools inhibit the human from becoming the truly enterprising and creative spirit that it inherently is
