Great knowledge is not just about hitting the books alone!

    In our cultures, we are not encouraged to "take up arts" too much because "it will sideline our formal education", or in other words, affect our quality of acquiring knowledge.

    However, this is not true as some researchers have seen links on highly successful scientists/researchers and their exposures on their artistic pursuits as well. It is known that learning arts can help complement the research if done normally.

    Artistic pursuits does not mean it's limited to playing the piano only. It can be drawing, painting, making stuff at home and such. :whistle:

    I agree that having a more creative side is a very good idea. I wished I was more artistic though...

    Everyone has an artistic side. The left and right brain concepts are a bit hazy nowadays as in actual, both sides of the brain are collaborating together to do things.

    No matter if our artwork comes out amateur or professional, we should learn how to embrace it. :thumb:
