Captain America's shield has how many rings?
Wanting to see more clearly, I brought my sketchbook, pens and pencils to the Hadley Cinemark.

When I bring my Cultivating Creativity students to the Springfield Museums, I invite them to draw the art in order to see the works deeply and to gain a richer understanding of artists' mindsets. I ask students to do blind contour drawings. This approach, designed to promote clarity of observation, involves keeping one's eyes on the subject matter while not looking at what the pencil is doing. Sort of like drawing in the dark.

I had greater visibility during the closing credits, allowing for more precision as I did a rubbing of my 3D glasses.
There are three rings on Captain America's shield.
