In Ms. Van Horn's kindergarten class, we were all creative.

I was part of a circle of 4 and 5 year olds who differed in many ways — not all of us could read or identify colors or numbers. But when it was time to color, draw or build something cool, we all rushed to the play area at full speed. We were all creative. 

These days, I'm sure if I could arrange a reunion of my kindergarten classmates, we might all feel differently about our natural creativity. I know because I hear the same uncertainty when I talk with any group of photographers, who I'm sure were all once kindergartners. 

My standard question, "what are you struggling with these days?" generates a lot of "I'm just not that creative" responses.

Tom Kelley says that's just not true. Tom is an innovation consultant and author of the book, Creative Confidence, and I have fallen for his thesis.

We are long past kindergarten, but if we buy in to the premise that anyone can be creative, and I do, how do we go about relearning the steps? 

I have six strategies that anyone can use to learn creativity.
