Research and Science About Creativity

Time magazine has a special edition this month dedicated to what science has shown about creativity (available until 11/2/18). Among topics are articles titled: “Seven Secrets to Unleashing Creativity,” “You’re Never Too Old,” and “How Parents Can Excite and Inspire.” I’ll include excerpts from this magazine in future posts.

In a time when art and music are being defunded in school districts across the country in favor of science and math, there needs to come an understanding that creativity is what produces that “aha!” moment, and that creativity needs to be practiced. The Time article titled “Eureka Moments” talks about research done to map where these occur in the brain.
