Answer is Yes. Some people do have innate abilities, and thus can naturally perform better than others in a particular subject.

They can also achieve similar results with regular practice.
The fact is that people are often more creative than they think. It’s said if you can write, you can draw as well. Everyone can learn to draw and paint, and they do it extremely well.

You can learn to draw by drawing, which can be achieved by experimenting with art material.
