Art Teaching Resources: Sun-related Projects
Summer is almost over and it’s time to head back to school. Here are some fun sun-related art and craft projects to help you to remember the fun you had on some of those hot summer days.
EASY SUN-MOON COLORING PAGES: Younger children will enjoy coloring these simple images of the sun and moon.
MORE COMPLEX COLORING PAGES: For children who are a little older, this Web site provides some more complex coloring pages related to the sun, weather, etc.
SUN HANDPRINT CRAFT: You can do this fun craft with construction paper or paper plates (for more durability).
SUN PHOTOS: Okay, this one’s not an art project, but the site’s still worth a visit. It is a collection of some awesome photos of the sun. Who knows? The budding artist(s) in your family might want to pull out their pastels and crayons and try to draw it.
Take your art to the next level with See the Light videos:
Learn about the Art Elements: Line, Shape & Space in Chapter 2 of See the Light’s Art Class. All drawings are made up of lines and shapes, and those lines and shapes take up space. Learn how they work together in Shape & Space.
Watch the dramatic story of baby Moses, God’s Special Surprise to the Israelites, brought to life through art and drama. This story builds the faith of children and encourages obedience to the Word of God.
Create a Collage in the Style of French Artist Henri Rousseau. Paper Jungle includes an in-depth art history focus on the style of Henri Rousseau, explores related art elements (shape, space, color) and art principles (grounds, scale, layering). Biblical content is woven into every single lesson.
