  1. I do not but I have a nephew that is 9 and does a terrific job at it. He has drawn things like dragons and more.

  2. I enjoy drawing but have not done much in the last few years. I do enjoy making handmade cards for my friends and family.

  3. I can’t draw. I think that’s why I love to color so much — allows me to be artistic without any talent.
