People have mentioned it to me before, but it does seem like most extremely creative people enjoy a variety of art genres. Personally, I write poetry, lyrics, novels, op-ed pieces and blogs, shoot photography, dabble in interior design, enjoy website design, sing karaoke, and if I had any talent with it, I'd probably play a musical instrument. For some reason I don't do well with painting or sculpting, but I used to draw quite a bit. I'll bet if I looked for other creative crafts, I'd probably try them. You should have seen me with Legos when my kids were in grade school...
I believe the world needs creative minds, but I don't know if everyone has the talent for it. You can't teach art to someone without aptitude or interest. You can, however, teach art appreciation. One problem in today's modern world is that there are many genres being neglected to make room for gaming, reality shows and sports.
There was a time where every school kid was expected to give a musical instrument a try. School budgets don't allow for that these days. I tried the piano, the baritone and the coronet, but I just didn't have any talent. It's one shortcoming I have- if I can't be good at something, I tend not to do it.
How does one get to Carnegie Hall? Via GPS, of course...
