I know this is the wrong crows to ask...but I have been pondering something:

Can creativity be taught?

Um, discuss.

I think in some ways many people can be taught to open up their minds, and unlock creativity within that they didn't know they had. Of course creativity is also not without influence from experiences..and what we see and hear..its not necessarily something people have or don't have which they are limited by. I think there are so many examples of people who are naturally born with creativity..and those that develop and shape their own creativity..but I do think it can be taught..and can be learnt

up to a certain point

No...however...a person can be inspired by others, and that can unleash one's creativity.
