Re: Learn this



How's this for a clarification:

You can teach technique and skills but there is more to art than that.
With training and practice almost anyone can be taught to draw, but the
ability do draw does not mean that one is an artist.

Almost anyone can be taught to follow a recipe and cook dinner, but it
won't turn you into a Julia Child.  Almost anyone can be taught to play a
musical instrument, but it won't turn you into a Horowitz.  What separates
the artist from the rest of us is something (don't ask me what) which is
inborn and cannot be taught.
