Creativity and learning

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
Pablo Picasso

Quoted by Sir Ken Robinson in his well viewed TED presentation ‘Do Schools Kill Creativity ‘

A quote of the day for Daniel Pink
from Iowa winner Mike Huckabee on the American Presidential trail :

"Education is only a true education if we're developing both the left and right brain of the student . . . . Take a room of 5-year-olds and give them a piece of paper and crayon and every one of them draws a picture. When he's 15 that kid won't draw the picture or sing the song. Somehow the education system beat out of him or her the creativity that was innate in that student."
