Is a rare and special ‘artistic’ talent required?

Posted Feb 12 2013 8:24pm

Drawing on the Artist Within book

Author Betty Edwards asks, “Why do we assume that a rare and special ‘artistic’ talent is required for drawing? We don’t make that assumption about other kinds of abilities.

“If you can catch a baseball, thread a needle, or hold a pencil and write your name, you can learn to draw skillfully, artistically, and creatively.”

From her book Drawing on the Artist Within .

Quoted in the section “You Have to be an Artist to be Creative, and Other Myths”
in my book “The Creative Mind: Identity and Confidence”
