All people are born creative, an aspect after the image of God . I believe that anyone can learn to draw and paint, IF they have the desire and I teach the discipline, knowing this to be true. Learning and following a process of Ideation and practice in the discipline leads to amazing results.
Phil. 4:8,9.
