Creativity is considered as a personal char-acteristic closely connected to free emotional self-expression. Early adolescence is especially sensitive to the mastering of self-expression because there is as much interest in the developing personality as in developing a means of expression. The author describes a special program for children's potential creative development. It is based on humanistic psychology principles (acceptance, emotional safety, absence of appraisal) and developing education (individualization, problems, dialogicity). The program was tried on 24 schoolchildren 10-11 years of age. The course consisted of 36 lessons. And as a result of the course, indices of creativity, intellectual development and self-appraisal of the schoolchildren increased.
