Classic Client Quote: Can you ever be *bad* at art?

Occasionally, I hear wonderful quotes from my clients at work, which I call Classic Client Quotes.  On this day, a client was graduating the program, and he felt that art therapy had helped him not only emotionally, but also technically and felt his art skills had improved (despite no emphasis on technique or product). On his last day, he stated his viewpoint on how people should not be concerned about their artistic skill level, as he experienced it in art therapy, and that the act of engaging in art is progress in and of itself:

"If you're actually bad at art, you're probably dead."  - Nick Dimira
