Drawing is...

Here is a nice quote about intuitive drawing that takes the competition and the I can't draw attitude out of drawing in schools ....

Drawing is an urge that is emotionally charged by our human experiences, thoughts and imaginative intelligence, to lose it is to miss out on an individual's expression through art, and to miss the point that valuing each others expressions is what creates social harmony.  That harmony is realized when we use our own intuitive process of self discovery and allow others to also use theirs, thereby mutually valuing one another.
