What is the square root of Pi?

#28 – Artists aren’t supposed to be good in math.
I’d like to challenge that notion, because I know just as many artists who have a natural aptitude for working with numbers than those who don’t. In the same vein, someone who struggles with math is not necessarily an artist.

I love math, and I’ve always been good at it. So if you listen to the myth circulating about artists and their supposed lack of aptitude in math, I shouldn’t be an artist. Neither should Leonardo da Vinci.

Granted, math is a function of the left brain. But any artist who has worked with perspective, the Golden Ratio, and many forms of sculpture has an ability to think in mathematical terms.

So for those of us who can, I say we embrace both math and art and use them to our fullest potential.

And I’m sure there are at least half of you out there who know the square root of Pi.
