Geometric Drawings

 

Inspired by the NCMA’s outdoor sculptures by artist Allen Bertoldi.

On the grounds of the museum, there are five sculptures by artist Allen Bertoldi. His sculptures are about simple geometric shapes made of metal, situated outside in the forest, fields, and ponds. One sculpture is made of 16 rectangles that look like doorways, framing the forest, and one is a giant circle that seems to be floating in the pond and creating a reflection. Why do you think an artist might use simple shapes to make an artwork?

Materials: paper, pencil, ruler or straight edge, different shaped objects, colored pencils or crayons.
