Highlighted Article: “Creativity and intellect” by Anna Martin

Intelligence and creativity should not be considered as opposing alternatives, and imagination and learning are nurtured together.

Albert Einstein supposedly once said:  “creativity is intelligence having fun”. What a wonderful statement – and yet we often see a rivalry between ‘art’ and ‘science’.

We can probably all name some distinctively imaginative people who ooze creativity, as well as intellectuals who spout off impressive facts. These personalities can clash, both in adults and as they develop in our children. But perhaps creativity and intellect can have fun together.
