Get creative

April 12, 2017 - 2:31pm
"She's creative." Was that just a nice way for my teacher to describe my chattiness, boredom and high activity level in elementary school? Or did it really all boil down to creativity? When I was in fifth grade, the teachers approached my parents with a proposal that I attend a school for creative kids two days a week. So, off I went, with other "creative" kids. I didn't really get it. I was pretty much a horrible artist and to my 10-year-old self, that's what I thought creative meant. So why me? What did creativity really mean? And why was I singled out? Maya Angelou once said, ""I think that each one of us is born with creativity." I'm going to go ahead and agree with her. At that special school, there was simply no cookie-cutter creative kid. With every lesson we studied, with every project we did, our individual creativity was explored in countless ways. Some kids were incredible artists. Others, could weave a tale with their words. A bunch of budding McGuyvers could make a working machine out of things like rubber bands and popsicle sticks. A few were so smart I'm sure by now they're working on curing cancer. But this class wasn't about top grades or even being smart - it was about looking at things differently and trying something new. It meant having the courage to color outside the lines and take a path less traveled. It taught us to challenge preconceived notions and pursue crazy ideas. In the words of Pablo Picasso, "The chief enemy of creativity is 'good' sense." Every day that group of diverse, mismatched fifth graders dared to defeat that enemy by throwing "good" sense out the window.
