At my first Chinese school, there were other classes besides Chinese, like math and drawing. I used to take drawing class... actually, I was forced to take it since I never said I wanted to. This was around first grade or something.
And in the drawing class, we didn't learn to draw. We just copied what the teacher was drawing. Most of the time, he was drawing a Pokémon.
as if pikachujenn didn't start out copying official pokémon art from bulbapedia
