Creativity is central to human improvement and innovation. In this course, you will explore and analyze the nine principles of creativity to dive deeper, beyond what you think you know, in order to gain a more comprehensive understanding of how creativity goes beyond just artmaking. You will be challenged to push the boundaries of your own creativity, and as a result, you’ll be able to take that expanded knowledge into the art classroom to ignite and enhance creativity in your class. You will be confidently prepared to effectively aid your students in using creativity to think critically to solve the challenges of the world they face.

A sample assignment from Week 3 of the class Creativity in Crisis
"Very informative and gives art teachers a lot of evidence to back up the importance of our subject matter. It also creates time for you as an artist to remember to explore your own talents and creativity. It made me remember the commitment that I must make to myself to balance my life as an artist and an art teacher."
"There is such minimal support and courses out there for art teachers. For something like AOE to be available to us and for it to be so ridiculously relevant, is like a dream come true. I could not find a graduate level course in art to satisfy 4 core courses I needed to take in addition to my Masters in Education. Thank you AOE! "
"This class has changed the way I will be teaching my class. The classes you offer are cutting edge and I am looking forward to taking another course in the future!"
