The product-orientated definition of creativity is widely acceptable because it is empirically objective and adequately reliable. The objective of this study was oriented toward understanding expertsâ€™ perceptions of creativity evaluated by experts. The perceptional map indicates that two dimensions clearly existed in the assessment of creativity among six experts. It is speculated that these two dimensions might be related to technical and aesthetic factors. Overall, the homogeneity of six expertsâ€™ perceptions of creativity on 46 collages implies that the product approach to some extent is a valid assessment of creativity. However, it is clear that more research is needed in the application of expert judges on creative products.
