    The sciences are more highly valued than the arts academically, and science curricula tend to be considered more difficult and rigorous than arts curricula.

    Science and engineering majors are generally the most difficult majors to complete in the vast majority of colleges. Art majors on the other hand often value creative skills over analytic and knowledge based ability. These majors just have different foci (creative vs knowledge based) and their student population averages tend to reflect this. While some art students may be able to succeed in science programs and vice versa, on average successful science majors are better at retaining and analyzing knowledge as that is what their major emphasizes.

    On the flip side, if you ask the average science major to make you a drawing, you will likely get some nice stick figures. Creativity is not the highest priority in science.

    Many people find calculus, physics, chemistry very difficult to understand or to do good in those subjects. Therefore you need to be smart to succeed in them. 

    Many people feel to do well at art, music or dance takes talent, not intelligence.  

    If you can’t play an instrument or draw it is because you don’t have the natural talent to do it, not because you are not smart enough to do it.

      Then why do people take art and music classes if it is not learned?

    Because modern education systems favour the ability to retain information over the ability to create something new.
