People aren't born with the ability to communicate by drawing, any more than they are born with the ability to use words. People who protest that "I can't draw" simply haven't learned.
Yes, some people are more naturally adept at using verbal language, but having a large vocabulary and good grammar doesn't make a fine writer, does it? In the same way, we find some students who have graphic facility, finding drawing easy, don't become outstanding artistis or architects.
Drawing is just a tool. It's what you do with it that makes the difference. Just draw, and draw more. Drawing is an acquired skill. You'll become adept if you keep at it.
