Preparation and process

To create an application on the theme of “Spring”, we need a dense drawing paper of A3 or even A2, brushes (can be replaced by a sponge), watercolor, markers, scissors, pencil and paper for cutting out all the elements of the composition. So, put a sheet on graph paper and draw on it with all the details: left side – the tree on the right – birdhouse on walkers, and in the space – six birdies in a curved droplet, wings half-circles and leaves. Now lay on the table a newspaper or oilcloth and coloring all the elements to your taste, not forgetting to constantly change the water in a glass for rinsing brushes, to paint does not mix or contaminate.

At that time subject to processing and the drawing paper: you can draw on it the heavens and the earth, that is, divide it horizontally in half and paint the top half blue and bottom-green and plain, in any delicate shade. Again give them time to dry. Now, in turn, we glue all elements onto the prepared base, placing birds and wings on top of them in an arbitrary order. And to complete our application on the theme of “Spring”, with the help of the marker dorisovyvaet the sun and, for example, the cell in the empty spaces. While birds added from white paper legs and beak and eyes dorisovyvaet. You can also circle the marker all the elements so they stand out from the background, and the leaves to represent veins. All done!

The Idea of a second: alley

The older Children for development and abstract thinking can take the idea a little more complicated. So, applique, middle group, the theme of “Spring”. It can be not just of colored paper, and cuts sheets of old Newspapers and magazines matching colors. It will require plenty of time and talent, as it is important to cut pieces of different sizes and link them so that they clearly create the image of trees on the Avenue. This is a pretty difficult job since it requires attention and concentration on a shared vision of the future picture, so as to make the application on the theme of “Spring” will only children with strong creative thinking. Parents can actively help in this process: cut with them coffee leaves, come up with a General idea of the story, so they will be able to strengthen their relationship with children.

To simplify the task, select the sheets of three colors: blue (for heaven), grey or purple (for track) and green (for the trees). For the latest elements of an application need paper of different colors, and it is better to have all the pieces on the working surface in separate containers according to the palette: a darker – for the trunks and branches, more light – for the leaves. To create application on the theme of “Spring”, you in the correct order to start to glue the parts. To simplify this problem with a simple pencil and ruler draw on the basis of (Whatman) for parts: departing 1/5 of the width of the sheet from the bottom side, draw a horizontal line. This is the horizon. Next, divide it in half and from the resulting points draw diverging downward arc, indicating the approximate boundaries of the track.

Create a composition

Now depicted the approximate shape of trees: to create the effect of diminishing prospects they should be located opposite each other on both sides of the alley, and the thickness of their trunks gradually decline towards the horizon. So, now cut the logs: track and sky can be made from larger parts, the same way, glue the first, but for the branches and leaves will need small pieces and thin (straight and curved) strip. In addition to the green paper shades that can be used and simple white, with printed text on it, it will dilute the bright song and make it more interesting. The main rule of creation of such application - always try to have a General picture, and then all must succeed.
