BrownSugar asked this question on the artcone forums: As a scientist by nature, I consider art to be a creative outlet for me. I was wondering about where artistic talent comes from:

– are you born with it (is it hereditary) ?
– is it for those with a creative nature?
– can you learn to be artistic (from having very little talent)
– are sciences and arts mutually exclusive?

What do you think ?
