What would our mental health issues, our prison system and our drug culture be like if we nurtured creativity instead of sqaushing it?
I heard Temple Grandin speak once and she said that our prisons are full of artists and poets and other creative thinkers. I live with a susbstance abuse counsellor and his patients are often creative people who have been slotted for jobs they are not suited to. I've taught studio art at the college level for 30 years and know that if my students didn't have the opportunity to make things and express themselves this way, they would find it restrictive and disturbing. Any thoughts?
