Life Stages of Creativity

by Veneta Kuyova - Thursday, 29 March 2018, 2:40 PM
 

Description

Creativity develops through age-related stages. Children and adolescents explore ranges of creative skills, but rarely contribute professionally to any discipline. Disciplinary creativity is often dependent on prior childhood play and learning, but is manifested mainly in maturity. Total creative productivity tends to increase until middle age and declines thereafter. Effective (high impact) creative productivity is usually limited to a few years and rarely correlates with total productivity.
