The point is, we are born creative. It is part of being human. The market isn’t cornered by people who can draw things besides daisies. Unless there is a neurological impairment, we can all imagine something then make it exist. It’s our superpower in the animal kingdom.
When life is so crammed with obligations that we can barely breathe, being creative becomes something we just don’t have time for... like exercise, or eating healthy, or spending time with people we care about...
I’m willing to bet hard cash that NONE of these people consider the time they’ve spent learning their craft/tapping into their creativity was wasted.
On the contrary, most people I know light up when showing off their work and it is a source of their greatest pride. They make the time because it’s worth it.
Think of how dreadfully boring the world would be if no one made time for artistic expression.
