Believing in your own creative abilities not only helps you to be more creative, it can help you to support and create opportunities for others to be more creative as well.
An individual’s creative beliefs are composed of:
Creative Confidence is an individual’s belief in their ability to be creative, through thought and action, in and across domains.
Creative Self-Awareness Beliefs is an individual’s awareness of their strengths and limitations of their creative abilities.
Creative Self-Image Beliefs is how an individual’s sense of self is influenced by their creative acts, goals, and abilities¹.
At A-Z Creativity, our children’s courses are structured to promote awareness of creativity and help children identify ways in which they are creative and areas of growth and development. We then help children grow and reflect on their growth, helping to increase their creative self-efficacy.
