Enhancing creativity in art education through brainstorming
Abstract:Enhancing creativity is as important as teaching art and design principles and elements of art. Creativity has to be developed and constantly exercised. The purpose of the research reported in this image text was to experiment with ideas in the literature about creativity in art learning contexts and new theories about short-term, highly performance-based brainstorming lessons. In this research, brainstorming techniques were used with two different age groups. For the younger students, brainstorming helped them express their ideas quickly and freely. For the university students, a brainstorming lesson carried out in parallel with practice and theory lessons had a strong effect on their performance in long-term projects. Brainstorming sessions can be useful therefore in keeping creativity alive.
