Creativity can't be taught in my opinion. You either have it or you don't.
It begins when the mind is in transit, not connected to specific ideas or concepts.
Where you can truly roam, free from physical obstacles or constraints.
Here's a quote:
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” - Albert Einstein
Imagination can unlock the doors which otherwise remain closed.
Some / many people have closed minds. They only believe what's in front of them. Or what they are taught or pick up from external forces such as media, education system, television.
And this dampens the mind and limits one's potential.
There's nothing more frustrating that trying to explain something to a person who is close minded.
There is safety in that. Ever heard the phrase "it blew my mind". This happens because the old ideas in your head were shattered by new possibility's.
And that's why people take some drugs to expand the mind, I'm not recommending them as drugs are illegal.
An open mind for a duration in time will solve more of life's problems than anything else in my opinion.
You may encounter smart people, those who have studied and learned from the masters, except try talking to them about a subject which they do not know.
Creativity is the secret sauce to life.
Try embracing it and see how things change.
Imagination is the key.
