Students doing science: learning about the
invasive bittersweet vine, in Michigan.
A student doing art: making the
bittersweet vine into a basket.
Further science and art: landcare:
removing invasive species and using what
we remove to make stuff for people:
we helped both people and nature.

 

Science is observation, awareness, knowledge, and education. Science is what you learn (take in) from your community and world. "Science is learning the patterns of nature and how nature works." ― Carl Sagan. Science is observation, exploration, research, curiosity, awareness, record, report, discovery, experiment, study, questions, knowledge, experience, wisdom, understanding, facts, theories, truths, and learning the patterns of nature and how nature works, how people can cooperate together to form sustainable communities, how human communities can live in harmony with habitats and ecologies, how cultures and educations and economies affect communities and people and nature, etc.
Art is expression, creativity, building, working, and applying science to make things. Art is working to make (give out) things for your community and world. Good art is art "in which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together." ― John Ruskin. Art is expression, creativity, designing, building, working, doing, action, caretaking, stewarding, and applying science to make things ― good art includes art of pleasing form and function, or appropriate form and function. Art is a unique thing that a person or people handmakes. Art is not factory mass-produced identical items. For instance, every handmade basket is at least slightly unique from other baskets. Plus, art is not limited to touchable items (paintings, sculptures, baskets, houses, etc.): art can also be untouchable forms of expression, such as dance, music, culture, morals, storytelling, and facial expressions. Science and art overlap, in that both science and art include experiment, experience, discovery, wisdom, understanding, and education. Science and art should be done with the motive to love ― to help communities, people, nature, and the world.

(better art) hands and head make something
(even better art) hands-head-heart make something

“He who works with his hands is a laborer.  He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.   He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.” ― Saint Francis of Assisi

"Science is learning the patterns of nature and how nature works." ― Carl Sagan.

"The greatest scientists are artists as well." ― Albert Einstein

The best sciences and best arts help people and nature thrive together in communities. The most important goal in both science and art is to help communities, people, and nature - to help people and nature thrive together.

Science is knowledge and art is unique individual things that people make (handmake, not factory mass-produce). Science is knowledge and art is science applied to make something of pleasing form and function.  Science includes “learning the patterns of nature and how nature works” ― Carl Sagan.  The best and most useful kind of science is learning how to simultaneously help both people and nature.  The best and most useful type of science is "community science": "learning" how to establish, sustain, and enrich natural habitats and human communities that live in harmony with the habitats.  Community science includes knowing about the community landscape: its geography, geology, climate, weather, water, ecology, etc.  The best and most useful arts are applying that science to make things that simultaneously help both people and nature.  The best and most useful arts apply "community science" to make art ― the "community arts" ― take "action" and "create things" to help to sustain and enrich people, communities, and nature, including community cooperation and people’s sustainable interrelationships with nature within the community landscape.   The community arts include paintings, mugs, baskets, books, cuisine, etc., even restored habitats, and sustainable communities that connect people and nature together in harmony.  Part of sustaining and enriching people, communities, and nature is to sustain and enrich native wild habitats. The best sciences and arts are done for the purpose of love ― brotherly-love, community-love, and world-love. It is with caring, moral, and loving motives that people choose to do the best sciences and arts, the sciences and arts that best help communities, people, and nature.

The best sciences and best arts help people and nature thrive together in communities. The most important goal in both science and art is to help communities, people, and nature - to help people and nature thrive together.

There is a subtle difference between "community science" and "community art."  "Community science" is "learning" how to sustain and enrich communities, habitats, etc.  "Community art" is the "action" and "creating things" that help to sustain and enrich communities, habitats, etc.  The best sciences and best arts support each other.  (Lousy science has little or nothing to do with art; and, lousy art has little or nothing to do with science.)  Science should be done to do art.  Science includes learning how to do and make things. Art includes doing and making things. Science includes learning how to do and make things such as thriving, sustainable, functional communities.  Art includes doing and making things, such as thriving, sustainable, functional communities. (See functional community.) 

 

At the ABC Garden, students learn many science lessons, art lessons, and sci-art lessons, in helping to make thriving, sustainable, functional communities.
