Nine of the Best Ways to Boost Creative Thinking

When it comes to creativity, one of our biggest concerns is usually how we can be more creative, or how to come up with better ideas. Research in this area is all over the place, but I’ve gathered some of the most practical studies out there to help you utilize specific techniques that can boost your creativity.

Sharing a skill … a short animation

Today was all about teaching/sharing a skill to someone else! The young people shared how to: Make a stop-frame, How to take a good photograph, How to use the video to capture what is happening, How to Irish dance and How to ‘bling’ up a mask!!

Week 6 - Bling it up!! Today the young people enjoyed making an item of their clothing or object individual!

Week 5 - Today the young people completed Part C - researching an Arts heroine! They also did some more mask making :-)

Week 4 - Part A - making masks! The young people were very creative today :-)

Week 3 - young people very busy today creating short stop frames, using cameras, creating a photo montage and recording evidence in their portfolios.
