Creativity is often defined in relation to artistic ability but creative thought reaches far beyond the arts and has profound implications in all parts of our lives. Creativity is about thinking outside the box, bringing fresh insight to established patterns of thought, rules and relationships. Creativity is a process of personal expression and playful pursuit, but creativity is also a highly sought after commodity, in business as well as the arts. Creative ideas may produce a work of art or music, it can lead to breakthroughs in science and engineering, increased personal satisfaction and career success, even solutions to highly complex social issues.
We are all capable of creative thought, but like other skills, it requires development. Countries all around the world have made the development of creativity a priority. However, while the United States has been a world leader of innovation in the past, increased emphasis on standardization, testing and cuts in arts programs, means we are no longer developing creativity and innovation in our students.

At Young Rembrandts, an after school enrichment program that teaches kids how to draw. The more kids we teach, the more parents ask – when are we going to teach them.

It was a rainy Saturday morning and four year old Brayden was looking for something to get busy with. He got out his crayons and drawing paper and came to find grandma. He thinks that because I can draw – I am his personal illustrator and coloring book. But instead of me doing all the drawing – we drew and colored together.
First I drew the rocket ship he wanted. Together we drew lots of circles that made the planets and far away stars in space. Then Brayden colored the rocket ship and all the planets – leaving me the dark, dark sky. He knew he left me the ‘big’ job, and was very complimentary about how well I colored. Good to know I can still impress a four year old!
As parents, we can look forward to summer as a time with lighter schedules, less structure and no homework. Let’s face it — we all need a break, and these warm, carefree days give us the perfect opportunity. However, too many lazy days can result in the well-worn phrase “I’m bored.” Today’s kids have so much technology at their fingertips — TV, movies, video games, the internet — that it can take some special effort to get them engaged in a wider variety of activities, activities that are important to keeping them “mentally fit”.
Although this drawing lesson was written with kids in mind, it’s fun for adults, too. This how to draw video series is the result of teaching children how to draw in Young Rembrandts for over twenty years!
