The ability to paint and draw has always been regarded as an art that requires talent or natural ability in order to master... this idea is FALSE.  It is entirely LEARN-ABLE and with enough desire and patience is MASTER-ABLE. Regardless of age, education, experience ​or even how much you think "I'm just not good at it" you CAN become an artist! Forget what you think you know about drawing or painting, pencils and paintbrushes, being a good artist has nothing to do with controlling paint or lead or ink and has everything to do with the way that you SEE. if you've got at least 1 eyeball in your head I can teach you to see with the eyes of an artist.
