Communication of ideas and knowledge are shared with each other through both science and art. As artists use their works of art to convey their thoughts and emotions, scientists share their research findings through conferences, journals, and other outlets.
Living around arts and science at the same time causes a very dilemmatic phase especially in education for youth and students at some point.
Now in school, arts go beyond pencils, colors and paint brushes; we now dive into business, law etc.
This tug-of-war starts at our secondary education where choosing the life direction is centered on choosing one of these options.
Science and art both have an aesthetic component. Although art studies have their appeal of powerful societal positions versus scientists who are seen and respected as the articulators and “nerds” of the population, both options yield great results. The key is to tread closely to one’s passion.
When you are at that education level and facing this dilemma, one can compare making the choice between these to a casino bet of some sort. We feel like we are gambling with our future. Fast forward, we look back and have a laugh because it all panned out just fine.
So, for any young student facing this dilemma, it is not the end of the world! Just stay true to what ignites the fire in your heart i.e., your passion and all will be fine!
