dc.description.abstract Creativity appears repeatedly in the curricula for the Compulsory School and the Upper Secondary School in Sweden, as well as in the course syllabi for Art Education. The purpose of this essay is to achieve a better understanding of the building blocks of creativity, in order to widen the range of tools that can be used in teaching situations. Departing from six established models of understanding creativity, the essay attempts to find some common aspects among the models, which can help teachers to unify and organize the models with the ultimate aim of achieving a wider and more comprehensive understanding of creativity. Close reading is used as the method of analysis and interpretation in order to find common categories among the selected models of creativity. The process of close reading is performed and organized using the structure and concepts of Qualitative Content Analysis (QCA), with an inductive approach. The analysis of the six models of creativity results in the identification and classification of two common themes: flexibility and bird’s eye view, the combination of which can be used as a way to achieve a more comprehensive, complete and thus enhanced model to understand creativity, which can give teachers a wider range of tools to apply creatively in the classroom. en_US
