I believe that if one understands the medium, they can achieve whatever they dream with it.  I leave the creativity to the individual and focus on the things that can be taught, ie; the mechanics  and understanding of the material, understanding value, color mixing, etc. These are the things that I wish I had been exposed to early on and hope that it helps beginners and advanced alike.  Enjoy creating!
