Creativity and the true teacher book
Many are participants in the author's classes, some are visitors from other parts of the university–learners, faculty members, administrators–and a few have come by way of friendship, family ties, or simple curiosity. Participants reflect upon the construction of their lanterns, the surprises and challenges of creating objects with their own hands, their moments of sharing and illumination, the meanings and associations of their objects, their feelings about giving and receiving with one another. The new participants–those who came tonight for the first time, with friends or family members–even they seem comfortable and at ease. Objects guide the paths of creativity and imagination, pointing the way to new discoveries and illuminations. Creativity is an exemplary teacher of all things useful to learn. It is the source of all of our human tricks, the root of every advancement, innovation, and folly.
