The Right to Draw

"Too much have we emphasized drawing as an art; it may be an art, if the one who draws is an artist; but if he is not an artist, he still has the right to draw if it pleases him to do so. We might as well declare that a child should not speak unless he put it into poetry, as to declare that he should not draw because his drawings are not artistic."--Anna Botsford Comstock, Handbook of Nature Study. Pg 17
