​What are the Arts and Sciences? It is sometimes unclear as to what constitutes an Art or a Science. The basic difference is how those subjects are approached. Most of the crafts and disciplines practiced in the SCA are really both Arts and Sciences and may be approached using both the artistic and scientific methods.

 The artistic method is aesthetically based. As we are a re-creative group, our art, while creative, should be based on in-period techniques and methods, combined in ways that are consistent with the various period styles. Our artisans try to create things that are aesthetically pleasing. Using the artistic method, we can analyze the arts of the pre-1600 c.e. (common era) period in order to recognize the proper use of those techniques.
