Is Drawing a skill?

13 Sep

The following quote by Chris Pullman got me thinking…Is drawing a skill? Or are the values that drawing hold the skills? Heres the quote and allow me explain:

“Design is not the narrow application of formal skills, it is a way of thinking”

If Pullman was talking in the sense, of say a formal skill in an software application, then his quote holds truth. But could it hold truth in drawing? And is drawing a formal skill? Perhaps communication, visual observation, thinking and the ability to generate images are the skills and drawing is the means to those skills?
