Both artistic and scientific activity try to explain the world, seek new knowledge, give vent to curiosity and creative thinking, use experimentation and express and communicate ideas through a visualization process. These are some of the concepts they have in common: creativity, exploration and discovery, expression and communication, experimentation. But there are important differences between scientific and artistic activity, like the targets they focus to, the objectivity vs. subjectivity view, the methodology or the way results are evaluated. What needs to be emphasized is the value of artistic practice as a form of knowledge that should be incorporated into science and technology practices, from STEM (Science, Technology Mathematics) to STEAM (with Art).
