Creative activity in conception of sustainable development education
Purpose ‐ The purpose of this paper is to reflect on the stages in the development of creative activity considering the distinctive features of all stages and the modes of dynamics of the development of a creative person. Design/methodology/approach ‐ The
paper analyses scientific investigations and pedagogical experiences in order to develop the model for the formation of creative activity of artists-visual art teachers in the context of sustainable development. Findings ‐ The investigations of scientific literature on pedagogy,
psychology, philosophy, as well as the analysis of pedagogical practice allow us to recognize that the formation of creative activity is comprised of several stages. These stages are closely connected with a creative process and depend on a person's artistic talents and abilities. Practical
implications ‐ The development of creative activity is a very complicated process that takes place over whole period of life and depends on social, material and mental factors. Each personality goes through this process in an individual pace and manner. Further, investigations will
be carried into a more profound analysis of the suggested system, the determinations of its development dynamics in connection with all mentioned above components in the context of sustainable development. Originality/value ‐ This paper is generalizing information of theoretical
and empirical research.
