Your shuddering is understandable.

However, remember that in the United States, the schools no longer teach
students handwriting.(One has to know how to read and write, in order to
be accepted into first grade --- the class which historically has taught
one how to read and write.)  Drawing is classified as "art", and is only
taught if their is enough time at the end of the quarter to squeeze it
in, and either the teacher, or the parents provide the requisite art
materials, at their expense. The school board won't pay for them,
because it lacks the funds to do so.

As such, if a kid learns to draw on a computer, there are one step ahead
of those who failed to learn to draw on a computer.
