Cornell President: Young scientists must be taught music and the arts

“… to be truly effective, we must start much earlier. What we really need is a much broader humanistic education for scientists (and nonscientists), beginning in K–12 education and continuing through the undergraduate/graduate and professional years. It is through the study of art, music, literature, history and other humanities and social sciences that we gain a greater understanding of the human conditionthan biological or physical science alone can provide.”                                              - David J. Skorton, Cornell President

Drawing and painting are learned subjects.
