I used to think what it would be like to, in a writing class, get a bunch of those anyone-can-writers together and have them write down the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears"...like:

"OK, we're gonna start out with something simple. I want everyone to write the story of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. Everybody remembers that, right? Oh, not so much? OK...here's the book. Everybody take 30 minutes to review."

Afterwards:

"Books closed. OK...easy, right? Let's start writing. I'll give you an hour and a half!"

When they finished, I bet that would be some funny reading.

Sure they learned to write in their first grade - just like they learned how to draw.
Now ask that same person if they can draw a picture of a dog, specifically a Husky (for instance) and while they are at it can the make sure that the dog has an eager expression on it's face and in it's pose - but surely anyone can draw?
Ah - perhaps we should be thought of as artists?
