Creative confidence is about designing and living an extraordinary life. Does this sound interesting and worth pursuing? We were inspired by creative confidence by brothers Tom and David Kelley and the experience of fulfillment from exercising our own creativity. Everyone has a huge reservoir of creativity within them. The question is whether or not you're tapping into the reservoir and getting into action. Many people have yet to discover their creative talents and therefore can't begin to tap into them. Our intention is to provide resources and inspiration to help you find your creative talent so you can start expressing it with confidence. In the same way that companies engage in oil and gas exploration we want you to engage in a creative exploration. Exploration and discovery is not enough however, as you need to develop your confidence to bring forth creativity and manifest it through art, books, professional career or the reinvention of your life. Creativity is like the engine for being fulfilled so you don't wake up 25 years later wondering where your life went or why you're not fulfilled. Your confidence is like the fuel to keep the creative engine going. The combination of your creativity, the pure potentiality of everything that's unique inside of you and confidence, the ability to actually express that pure potentiality, is the recipe for success in every area of your life. Expression of creativity is the highest fulfillment of the human spirit. If you labeled yourself as a non-creative type, then it's time to shatter that paradigm. If you see yourself as highly creative expressing yourself through writing, woodworking, painting or any other medium, then this book will affirm your creative pursuits and inspire you to go to the next level. Start your journey and share some of your success stories. We want people to find their creative confidence to share their stories and inspire others along the way.

The creation of a safe, sensory-appealing arts program in which works created by diverse peoples and cultures are valued is emphasized throughout. Focus is also placed on where arts activities are integrated into a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Children's literature about the arts, and ideas for adapting arts activities for children with special needs, are integrated into each chapter. Chapters cover the creative process; artistic, aesthetic, and sensory development; anti-bias; and community-building arts activities. Emergent curriculum, thematic teaching, the project approach, and art appreciation activities are also included. Examples of teaching in action model how to be an enthusiastic and effective teacher of the arts process.

This book includes 50 situations that present interesting opportunities and challenges to stimulate students' creative and critical thinking. The brief, practical, everyday situations provide motivating starting points for practicing Creative Problem Solving with groups of many ages. These problems were designed to represent a variety of different tasks or challenges in an open-ended, invitational format that we describe informally as a "Messy Situation." These Messy Situations, like many of life's everyday opportunities and challenges, take a variety of forms, sizes, and shapes. They might concern a variety of situations in which people find themselves day in and day out. Thus, some of the Messy Situations in this book are people tasks (that is, situations involving the interactions or relationships among people). Others are planning tasks (that is, concerning more effective ways of organizing or managing a situation), and yet others are product tasks (that is, challenges that call for designing, inventing, or producing a new product of some kind). Each of these one-page problems can help students learn and apply CPS components, stages, and tools in an engaging and enjoyable way. Choose the problems that are best suited to your group's interests and needs. The challenges in Practice Problems for Creative Problem Solving and several helpful worksheets are reproducible for classroom use.
