ABOUT – A Guide to Our Policies and Other Tidbits of Information
Thank you for starting your search for educational posters with The Creative Process!
The Global PathMarker series is an eclectic group of people who were chosen as exemplars of the ‘great individual’ or hero archetype, the essential seed and fruit of creative activity in culture. Our aim is to stimulate curiosity and contemplation about the mysterious creative ‘oneness’ of life by celebrating its diversity as expressed by courageous visionary leaders.
Albert Einstein’s portrait by Frank Szasz was our first Global PathMarker. Szasz also painted our Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul II, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Mark Twain, as well as Eleanor Roosevelt, Albert Schweitzer, Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan, Franz Liszt, Pope John XXIII, and a series of Native Americans: Iroquois Chief Leon Shenandoah, Mohawk Chief Jake Swamp, Tom Banyacya of the Hopi, Black Elk as an Elder, a Medicine Woman, a Dancer, a Youth and a Young Child for the Global PathMarkers that we have available in a special limited edition of biographical bookmarks.
We are also pleased to offer Szasz’ portrait of Carl Gustav Jung, published by CCHD Jung Project, KCMO.
The Maria Montessori portrait was painted by Ernst Ulmer.
All of the Global PathMarkers images are copyrighted and all rights are reserved. Please contact us to put a Global PathMarker image on your site- we request a link back to www.creativeprocess.net, acknowledgement of the artist, and the text “name of individual” image courtesy of The Creative Process.
The quotes that accompany the portraits were chosen by the founder and president of The Creative Process, Fred Culver, as succinct expressions of each person’s deepest meaning, based on his study and understanding of their philosophy. He also wrote the text for the biographical bookmarks.
The Global PathMarker series will never be complete and new images will be added as we are able. Please contact us with your suggestions or for more information about any of our services.

The contemporary concept of a “poster” – a large piece of paper with a graphic image, intended to attract attention and usually reproduced in quantity, had to wait for advances in printing technology, industrialization, and mass literacy to supplant the human poster – the scribe, town crier, and troubadour – as efficient and versatile advertising for products and events, introducing ideas and influencing opinion (propaganda or education), and art affordable to almost everyone.
Posters in a classroom can be an effective method of instruction – bringing in reproduction posters from an era such as World War I and World War II, immerses the learners in the time period and the comparisons about recruiting, how enemies are identified and demonized, how the roles of women were evolving, are immediate.
The Global PathMarkers can spark a conversation in the classroom which makes your lesson “sticky” in a way that formula thinking will not inspire. Each individual in the Global PathMarkers has curriculum enrichment resource pages with helpful links to web sites, other posters, books, and quotes, as well as resources for the arts, science, and social studies disciplines, and other notable people. The Creative Process searches the web for posters and art prints to supplement our Global PathMarker selection and give you the best choices for your searching time and dollars.

The Creative Process has never sent, nor ever will send, spam. We are, in fact, victimized twice by spammers- not only do we have to delete hundreds of emails a day from our computers, our domain, creativeprocess.net, is abused by a behavior called “spoofing.” An email will appear originate with creativeprocess.net (or another innocent domain), but will in fact, be sent by someone else who has a program that hides their identity and uses ours. Please check out the Federal Trade Commission for ideas about protecting your email address and computer from being used without your knowledge, reporting spam, and legal penalties.
BTW- sending unsolicited email is not the crime, disguising your identity is –
