Elliot, S. (2017). Creativity and problem solving in art education. Teachers and Curriculum, 1(1). https://doi.org/10.15663/tandc.v1i1.297


This paper explores factors that are considered to contribute to creativity and problem-solving in art education. It then reports on two exploratory, small-scale action-research studies designed to investigate the extent to which art approaches incorporating the factors identified foster creativity and creative problem-solving in art. The results suggest that if creativity and problem-solving are to be developed in art then the total classroom programme probably must support this.
