“ReCreating America: Creativity and Learning” explores the importance of creativity in education: how can parents and teachers assist the creative growth of children, and what do they often do to stifle it? “When we’re six or seven years old,” Picasso once said in old age, “we’re all artists. It’s what happens in school and at home that determines who remains an artist.”
The film takes the State of Oklahoma as a test-bed, and visits four schools (across the age range) to assess the ways in which they are attempting to teach and promote creativity.
The program asks teachers, parents and national experts: what appear to be the most effective ways to promote creativity, while still teaching the three Rs and even improving test scores?
