Rounding the bend of this artsydefined photo challenge, I needed some inspiration for scale, so I turned to the kids for help. My six-year-old set up the cat display pictured to the left, and my four-year-old posed for the bubble-head photo.
Now these are very literal examples of scale, and do not really tie back to art. But what I did manage through this day’s photos was to teach both my children what scale means. Ever since, they’ve been pointing out examples of scale to me. When I got home from work the next day, my son had made these triangles just so that I could photograph them. As an artist and career mom, I couldn’t hope for more than to inspire my children to create art as well!
