Abstract: This case study utilizes three theoretical lenses on creativity—cognitive, sociocultural, and Afrocentric—to visualize the creative process of an African American teen as she engages in making practices to design an Afrofuturist artifact. The study looks at how these lenses illuminate different facets of her design process by depicting her cognitive activities; visualizing the social, material, and temporal distribution of her practices; and revealing the emotions and cultural values that inform her decisions. By opening the space to community-derived knowledge in both the design and analysis of maker education, we aim to meet participants' worldview and advance our understanding of culturally sensitive learning.
