Lesson notes for the middle group on artistic and aesthetic development. Drawing “My beloved sun”

SOHO Tools

One of the satellite's main instruments is EIT, which stands for Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Telescope.

It shows images of our star's atmosphere taken at wavelengths of 171, 195, 284 and 304 angstroms. The bright areas in the photograph taken at wavelength 304 have temperatures between 60,000 and 80,000 degrees Kelvin. 171 corresponds to temperatures of 1 million degrees, 195 corresponds to bright areas having a temperature of 1.5 million degrees, and finally, 284 corresponds to a temperature of 2 million degrees Kelvin.

The MDI instrument also makes magnetograms showing the magnetic field in the solar photosphere. Black and white areas indicate opposite polarity.

The images shown here were taken near 6768 angstroms by our sister satellite SDO. The most prominent features in the photograph are the spots.

May the sun smile upon us widely

An extremely stressful and gloomy day will instantly be filled with new colors of life. Draw the sun with an open, radiant smile whenever such an opportunity presents itself, then you will be guaranteed to be in high spirits for accomplishing important and less important things.


  • Draw a small, even and beautiful circle with a pencil;
  • Two ovals appear for the eyes, and a wide smile is added;
  • Now the rays are depicted. If you imagine for a moment flaming tongues of fire, then they will need to be done on paper in a slightly curved form.
  • The originality and charm of this design is also associated with the alternation of short and long rays;
  • At the last stage, all previously designated contour lines are simply clearly drawn. To do this, you should use felt-tip pens; you can use a marker that matches the color.

Ready! We smile at our wonderful sun, which can warm you in any bad weather.

Emphasis on large eyebrows

There is another version of the sunshine from the animation theme, which this time favorably allows you to add a few cute freckles and rich density of dark eyebrows to the huge eyes and blinding smile. The example will be very funny.

It is best not to disturb the sequence of work, and also to draw the sun in stages.

For this:

  1. An even circle is drawn as the basis of the future image;
  2. Rays are emerging. They are somewhat angular and have different sizes. This shape looks much more natural;
  3. The face will look like this. Elongated dark eyes and a large beautiful mouth are drawn.
  4. Then you need to start drawing the eyebrows, making them as thick as possible in a dark shade.

Don't forget to add a few "chic and cheerful" freckles.

Zigzag design

The rays look unique in the form of a cardiogram. To depict the sun this way, you will need the following:

  • eraser;
  • series of markers.
  • a simple pencil;
  • horizontal sheet of paper;

You should start working by placing a piece of paper in front of you. The next steps will be as follows:

  1. Draw and color the circle yellow, adding a face and feathers if desired.
  2. Draw the outlines clearly.
  3. On the cardiogram with yellow-orange tints, create the outlines of the rays in the form of jumps. Jumps should be of different lengths and with different frequencies. Colors for dyeing can range from bright yellow to dark red.

Don't become a hostage to photography

If you draw from a photograph, do not be afraid to abandon certain elements in the photo that will not decorate the composition of your future work. It may be a good idea to, for example, adjust the cloud line or move trees, blur the shoreline, etc.

Give yourself permission to make changes that will make your painting more interesting. After all, your work won't hang next to the original photo, and no one will know what the shape of that cloud actually was or whether all the trees were the same size.

When drawing from a photo, it is important to remember one more thing: the camera changes color relationships. Dark areas look darker in the photo, shadows lose a lot of detail

In fact, even in the shadows we can observe a sufficient amount of color, different color variations.

Sun made of plasticine, modeling dough

Plasticine sun is a simple and, at the same time, fascinating work that will interest anyone. A plasticine sun can be a craft for kindergarten or school, or just something to do in your free time.

Making a plasticine craft is not at all difficult: you just need to select the plasticine of the desired shades and sculpt the sun and rays from it.

For younger children, you can offer plasticine coloring: draw a sun on paper and instruct the little one to “cover” it with plasticine of the appropriate color.

An alternative option is to make a craft from play dough. The range of materials for creativity is now so wide that you can easily select the dough of the required bright colors and put it to use. Note that the dough craft can be dried and you will get a wonderful souvenir.

Another interesting way to make a sun with your own hands is by modeling it from salt dough. This activity will be doubly interesting: first you need to prepare the dough, then sculpt a figure, dry it and paint it with paints. You can prepare salt dough like this: mix fine salt, flour and cold water in equal proportions.

Modeling not only develops fine and gross motor skills of the hands, but also helps to reveal creative potential, develop imagination and fantasy.

Umbrella for your beloved sun

Especially during the rainy season, after a hot sunny summer, sadness suddenly comes. You shouldn't wait until it develops into dull melancholy.

In order to get rid of unnecessary unpleasant expectations, you can simply use a simple pencil and bright colors to depict the radiant sun under an umbrella for your own pleasure.

For this:

  • A cloud is drawn with gray paint;
  • A circle is drawn under it with a pencil. A button-like nose and laughing cute eyes are drawn;
  • The resulting “bun” is complemented by rays, as well as the main attribute this time – a folded umbrella.
  • This time the character’s hands are wearing gloves, which doesn’t seem out of place at all;
  • The rays for such a “sun” should “wriggle” unevenly, resembling something alive and moving, and you can decorate the umbrella with colored “polka dots”.

Fabric sun

Let's look at another beautiful craft on the theme of the sun, but it is more complicated. Prepare for work:

  • a piece of fabric and yellow thread;
  • cardboard;
  • padding polyester (cotton pad or foam rubber);
  • wooden skewer or thin stick;
  • glue "Titan" or "Master".

Stages of work:

Cut an even circle from cardboard, size as desired. From yellow fabric we cut out a circle 1-1.5 cm larger.

Place a cotton pad (foam rubber) on a cardboard circle, cover it with a yellow cloth and turn it over. Now you need to sew the edges of our sun with light threads.

To do this, first we sew over the edge in a circle of fabric, then with a needle we firmly tighten the ends of the fabric from one side to the other, as shown in the figure.

You can glue the edges of the fabric to the wrong side without threads, having previously trimmed the ends of the fabric by about 0.3 cm. Glue the edges of the fabric on top of each other.

Pull one thread at a time horizontally from the rectangle so that 0.5-0.7 cm remains. You get a fringe. From the inside we glue the fringe in a circle. Glue a wooden skewer or thin stick to the inside.

From cardboard or thick yellow material, cut out a circle slightly smaller in size than our base. Glue it to the wrong side, covering the stick and threads.

On the front side we draw eyes for the sun and a red mouth in a semicircle. You can paint with a brush and acrylic paints. Our craft is ready. Instead of fabric, the rays can be thin, long strips of foam rubber or foil.

We offer a lot of photo ideas for sun crafts for kids.
