Can creativity be trained? This topic is the subject of many arguments. Some would say that creativity is something you either have or you don't. Others would argue that is something that is in all of us, but it's how you nurture it that's important. Would be interested to hear your views, and please give your opinion in the poll as well!

I would have to answer yes and no on this topic. I don't think the creativity itself can be trained but I think we can be trained to allow creativity to have more of a say in our decisions, actions, thoughts, etc.

I have never seen a child yet who wasn't overbrimming with it.. It's not something you just can lose from growing older or whatever... I believe families and environment have a lot to do with it... whether they encourage it or work to dampen it. But the no part of this answer says they can be trained to let it out only if they want to be trained.. You can't force learning one way or the other.

Creativity itself can't be trained, the very definition of it precludes that. If you go for training with such a name most likely you would learn about a whole bunch of creative decisions, thoughts, actions, etc. What you are learning is someone else's creativity, not your own.

The term "Creativity" is a vague term; it can mean a lot of things. If you are asking if talent like Picasso, Jackson Pollack, Beethoven as creative individuals can be obtained through training, then maybe the answer is no. But if you are asking about kind of creativity that we see in web design, re-touching, photographs for magazines and what have you, I say, these creative skills can be obtained through training.

I don't think the creativity can be trained. But you can learn and improve from others - those that are BORN with it.

Well, I don't think I'm disagreeing here, but I just think that "creativity" is defined so vaguely today. Let me take an example. I used to program video games(no major title, just some of video games that basically disappeared into the dark ...) and one of graphic designers kept saying "Art, art, art." He was talking about graphics he created like buttons, logos and sort. I just think that, although he might have been a creative professional and a creative person, much of his work was categorized into "graphics", kind of work that trained professionals can do. But somehow this type of work is often called "creativity" today.

What i feel is that they learn the basic of the ART and if they are not creativity, they will still create something that most of them CAN~

So Creativity is a GIft that can't be trained.

Trained professionals can do those works because they are TEACHED to use creativity work that are create by creativity people.

Creativity and talent are not synonymous. Creativity is the idea, talent is the ability to put the idea into action.
