Two stories about drawing

"What are you drawing?" the teacher asked her. The little girl said, "I'm drawing a picture of God." "But," the teacher said, "nobody knows what God looks like." The girl looked up, "They will in a minute."
From a TED presentation by Ken Robinson

When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college teaching people how to draw. She stared back at me, incredulous, and said, "You mean they forgot?"
