Now, consider some of most memorable marketing campaigns in recent history. What do they all have in common? Creativity; creativity that must be instilled at an early age, and is most effectively taught in school.
Art lessons are very time consuming to prepare, and many teachers feel that they lack artistic ability or creativity to teach art. The reality is however, that they really don't need to be creative geniuses themselves to teach art in their classrooms.
Educators who feel that help is needed can turn to plenty of outside sources for aid. By doing just a little bit of homework themselves, teachers and parents can find people, groups, and even companies who are ready and willing to come to rescue. Taking advantage of this help can save hours of time and energy, and provide a much-needed educational benefit.
