Abstract The paper draws on the combined perspectives of two Australian art educators to contend that while art education promotes creativity through learning in and about art, there needs to be more attention to fostering creative skills in the wider sphere of education. The paper notes the increasing recognition of the central role of arts education, and the arts in general in enhancing our world to accentuate that the fundamental elements of creativity that apply to the arts need to be incorporated into our teaching procedures across discipline boundaries. It further posits that art education at pre-service teacher level is one vital catalyst for creativity in schools, and outlines an approach taken to promoting student teachers' relative capacities for their own sense of creative being, as well as their preparation as teachers who need to promote children's creativity in either art or generalist classrooms.
