"Take the premise that everyone’s born with an imagination which I believe they are, by the time they’ve decided to work within let’s say the notion of the creative skills, what you’ve got to do is actually develop, it sounds very formal, but a series of exercises, which goes back to the subjective levels of enthusiasm, stuff like that. You can actually get that imagination to develop by allowing people to see into what it is they have through a series of exercises that you might give them. And I don’t want it to sound formal because my premise on teaching wasn’t of that stance that you would give subject matter to study, but if you can entice them into looking in a particular kind of way so they can discover they have this ability, then that becomes quite exciting."
