Name the lines, shapes, and dots!

Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE

At Claire’s Creative Adventures, we love exploring the basics of drawing and painting: lines and shapes.  Breaking the 3-D things that we see every day into simple 2-D lines and shapes is both educational and fun (+ often surprisingly difficult.)  That’s one of the many reasons that we loved the Ellsworth Kelly Plant Drawings exhibition at the Met!  These simple line drawings are strikingly beautiful and should be experienced in person.  Kelly has been making plant drawings throughout his entire career, and the eighty drawings in the exhibition span sixty years.  Take a look around with the kids, and try to identify the lines using the chart above!

The exhibition closes September 3, so this weekend is a great opportunity to check it out (and don’t forget to go up to the roof to see Tomás Saraceno on the Roof: Cloud City installation too!)
