We are all born with the need and longing to create, but the creative
talent varies from individual to individual. It then depends on how we
nurture this creativity how it developes. It is very important to protect
and nurture the creative talent all children have by giving them enough
opportunities to create, to create an environment for them that stimulates
and supports their creativity and to enable them to have various
experiences to build their creative works upon. When children reach the age
that they need to learn the skills to be able to create what they want at
any given time we must teach them. If they donīt have the skills and
knowledge to create then their creativity wonīt blossom.
