PEPY Staff Get Creative!
What does it mean to be creative? Writer Thomas Disch claimed that “creativity is the ability to see relationships where none exist.” If this is the case, then at PEPY we are imagining all sorts of relationships, while we constantly look for ways to improve our Creative Learning Classes. The CLC team have been busy developing a new curriculum, which will encourage cross-curricular, topic-based learning. Wishing to reinvigorate the goals of the program, the team decided to go back to basics and have spent the past week revisiting and re-learning what it actually means to “be creative.” We are lucky to have Maria Perez (PEPY’s resident graphic designer, artist, and all-round creative person) for the next couple of months, sharing her skills and knowledge with the CLC team. We’ll keep you updated as we move forward with new and creative approaches to teaching and learning, and the revised CLC curriculum. For now, you can check out some pictures from a recent training session about creative displays and our different “thinking hats” on our flickr site.
