The introduction of arts in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) teaching has gain momentum in the last years. The benefits of a joint academic programm design between both schools -arts and science- remarks the stimulation of creativity and critical thinking during the learning process towards the development of novel ideas and products by the students. In this paper, we put forward some preliminary concerns to establish connections between the teaching of engineering core concepts supported by visual arts that could help increase the pregnancy of main topics in the engineering field. In particular, we illustrate entropy, a complex but fundamental mathematical notion to understand communications technologies. Through perceptions, supported by a video frame exhibiting different stages in the history of painting, we provide some guidelines to teach better the fundamentals of this core concept in a multisensorial approach.
