Creativity workshops in Greece
Around 30 youngsters and pupils participated during one month period in art workshops in Greece, which helped to develop their creativity and “alternative” skills.
This workshop encourage young people to co-operate together, respect others ideas and promoted initiative spirit.
During this workshops we used also methods of convergent and divergent thinking that are two types of human response to a set problem that were identified by J. P. Guilford. By practising of problem solution, we have shown youngsters how to solve problems in creative way.
Young people were actively involved and took their initiative, worked individually and in the groups.
They created new creations by using their fantasy, ideas, based on stimulation during the creativity exercises.
In the preparation phase they participated in the creativity exercises, they created new realities, stories. During this preparation they got new visions, new points of looking to the things, realities, new forms of communication based on new words, new language.
Based on this preparation they continue in the second phase which was practical and they use craft with different techniques to illustrate their ideas.
This workshop was very interesting for youngsters, they were very exited. This workshops open their minds and helped them to overcome their borders and show them how to be creative in different areas in their life’s. In the end of the workshops they presented their results to the public in open exhibition. We will develop this creativity workshops in the future.
