UNEARTHING TALENTS AND CREATIVITY IN CHILDREN THROUGH CREATIVE DRAMATICS
Volume: 6 Issue: 4 2016
Many children do not reach the full potentials of their lives; their God-giving gifts, talents and creative abilities are left undiscovered. This is most often true among children living in orphanages and other institutionalized homes. Factors such as lack of financial resources, quality parental control, favourable environment for talents discovery and stigmatization are often cited as major hindrances. Talents, gifts and special abilities in children should be nurtured, shaped and encouraged to promote full utilization for the benefit of the child. Drama in Education, an area under the arts has been recognised as a significant model of learning by children. It provides children with an opportunity to work together cooperatively on a common inexpensive platform. This article is a report on how talents and other creative skills of children, particularly children living in orphanages have been discovered and giving the necessary nurturing process. Creative Dramatics as a process in Drama in Education was employed by the researcher. The role of drama in education in talents discovery has been extensively discussed.
