Among the educational objectives, the stimulation of imagination and creativity must be a
basic one, along with the education of thought. In the content of education, the general culture must be
further promoted, this favoring creativity. Programs must provide special lessons for developing
creative imagination. The extracurricular activity offers many opportunities for cultivating the
imagination. Meetings with students of scientists and art can be initiated in the student circles who can
talk about their work. Visiting exhibitions, excursions broaden the horizon and represent endless
sources of questions. Creative thinking needs a rich material to operate with and to facilitate
generalization. But it is not just the accumulation of knowledge, but especially their systematization,
the acquisition of the internal structure of knowledge, the understanding of the mutual relations of
objects and phenomena. Children’s creativity is characterized above all by the intellectual, affective,
motivational relationship that the subject brings in his action through his personal efforts. Each child
gradually evolves into a specific individual structure of his or her creative potential, which largely
delimits their personality.
