MASK Creativity Education Model

Over 17 years, MASK has developed a creativity education model that has the potential to advance mainstream education and address quality, access, and partnerships for better learning. The model comprises the following elements:

Principles framework:

  1. Creativity should be at the core of both mainstream education and broader society.
  2. Creativity is primarily visual thinking, with art practices playing a crucial role in learning creativity.
  3. Creativity is a skill that can be taught directly, beginning at an early age.
  4. Creativity must be ethically guided for the best outcomes for all.
  5. Accessibility to creative education should be universal; only when everyone is creative will the entire world prosper.

Curriculum framework includes:

  1. Creative personality (beliefs and behavior)
  2. Creative skill (visualising connections)
  3. Creative practice (learning how to apply creativity in real life using the MASK Five-Step Practical Creativity framework).

    Learning activities consist of:

    1. Art practices
    2. Creative thinking exercises
    3. MASK Five-Step Practical Creativity framework exercises

      Learning environment requires:

      1. Creativity in the classroom (training facilitators through our Facilitator Training Framework)
      2. Creativity in the community (engaging communities through MASK programme of exhibitions, workshops, seminars, and publications).
