You mean like the old US Art School Home Study Course (or something like
that) ads such as: "If you can draw this face, you too can be an
artist?" And then present a simple cartoonish profile for them to copy
and grade them on how well they can do it?

Forgive me, but an art test in this day and age seems a bit retro.

Help the individual's spirit and the mind to evolve--the training of the
hand, though unnecesary in producing meaningful art, will emerge in time
and can then be developed.

Best wishes,
