Creativity

Many gifted children and teens are very sensitive, and sensitivity often goes hand in hand with an artistic temperament and a drive to express creativity in a variety of areas. 

The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To them. . .a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death.

Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create - so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating.

Pearl S. Buck, Pulitzer Prize winning author and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature


If they are to thrive, gifted students need the opportunity to develop the skills related to their creative outlets. Students excel in appropriate school and afterschool programs and at home. Creativity is inwardly driven, and gifted students thrive when their special gifts are acknowledged and nurtured.
