Over the past hundred years creativity has been a topic that has attracted a wide range of interest from researchers across education's many discourses. This paper provides a brief review of the major historical trends in this scholarship. It identifies art education as a significant partner in creativity research, but it has tended to approach this topic in a manner criticised as being somewhat conjectural and self-serving. Creativity is not by any means art education's exclusive property, and with renewed interest being shown in this phenomenon in many Australian states curricular, this paper asks if art education needs to broaden its agenda if it is to assert a privileged position in creativity debate.
