Inspiring Creativity: All the World is a Stage

Creativity is self-expression that arises out of interaction and exploration of self, others, culture, and environment. In children, creativity develops through playful experiences, rather than concern for the finished product. Creativity is nurtured through the creative arts. The creative arts are activities that engage the whole child. They include art, dance, drama, puppetry, music, science, engineering, and math. Through interactive learning activities, group discussion forums, videos, and reflective writing exercises, participants will learn to create a classroom where creative arts play can thrive. This is a 4-hour course worth 0.4 CEUs.
