Art of Play: Discovering the Secret to a Creative Life, or, the Goat Who Ate My Art
Art of Play delves into the mysteries of how play is the driving force in creativity. The book explores the cultural influences of nurturing the innate playfulness in children through the early years as their brains absorb language skills, socialization and adaptive behavior, in fact, becoming creative, social animals. During this cognitive development their brains grow to perhaps ninety percent of their eventual capacity.
This book is a wakeup call and a challenge that will inspire change in the way we regard play in children as well as in adults. All creative people know how to play. Do you?
