You appear to be of a dying breed of ignorant conservatives who view art as being all in technique, practical aptitude and an ability to replicate something from reality in the form of a painting, drawing etc. Abstract Expressionism, an art movement that included Jackson Pollock, began to experiment with those techniques and methods in a highly creative and original way. Surely there is nothing more monotonous and manufactured (and pointless) than replicating a real life image with paint - surely this is an ability that is intrinsic to some people (like this young girl) - something you are born with, an 'eye' for tone and colour etc; if you have that talent it's great but it needs to be put to the correct use. There is little if not no creativity in this girl's work, its merit is all down to her age and not the art itself; the art itself is unoriginal, pretentious and without meaning (yes it would be wrong to expect a young girl of her age to be able to avoid these things). She will reach a point where her ideas die, she has little creativty left and will choose to explore the paint itself - to create abstract art. She'll grow tired of duplicating real life images and begin to experiment and 'play' with the paint, and it is in this that her real creativty will reveal itself. True creativty in art is the ability to accept that you are using paint, accept that you will not capture identically what you are painting as a camera would, and to embrace this and explore the paint itself - and this is exactly what artists like Jackson Pollock did; "this is paint, this is a canvas, I am an artist and will not pretend that I can draw accurate duplications of reality, I will create my own, and experiment with my own". Surely, before even attempting such drawings you must experiment with the paint itself - how can a workman work without a true understanding of his tools?
