Advice 1: How to draw Russia

A large and vast country. There are sea and mountain views in our country. The question of patriotism, who in the 90 years several are out of date, again becomes relevant. It is considered that the future of the country in the hands of children. It is important to instill a love for the Home of this category of citizens. During the Soviet Union much attention was paid to the Patriotic education of children of preschool and younger school age. Through various activities instilled pride for their country.
How to draw Russia
Example of such events can be a themed exhibition of children's drawings entitled "My Motherland - Russia". Participants are required to offer a choice of several options for the preparation of competitive works.
"My Motherland on the map." The participants should represent the country on the map or globe. On political maps Russia is highlighted in pink, but in this case it is necessary to allow children to be creative. Let them paint the country in accordance with their ideas about how should look the Motherland. You can specify the capital or your city boundaries with other countries.
"Nature Of Russia". In this category, children must to portray the beauty of the fields, birch forests, natural features of the area in which they live. If the competition is held, for example, in the city of Sochi, where nature does not correspond to the standard notions of the Russian land, pictures need to come up with appropriate names. The drawing of a palm tree, you can make a review of the "South sister birches".
Peculiarities of the national character." You can play the dolls, the dishes painted Khokhloma or Gzhel, women and men in national costumes, traditional holidays (Shrovetide or Easter). All appropriate, that highlights the breadth of the Russian soul.

Advice 2: How to draw globe

Globe and now very often portrayed in various emblems of educational institutions and scientific societies. This is not surprising. Reduced model of the planet for many centuries of its existence, became a symbol of science. The globe can be seen in the picture on the life not only of the traveler or geographer, but also a philosopher, student, alchemist and many who have. Not disappeared from the globe, and with school logos, and festive decoration of the school holidays. Make the picture of the globe in different techniques and from different materials, but in any case, you first need to draw a sketch.
How to draw globe
You will need
  • - a sheet of paper;
  • pencil;
  • - images of different globes;
  • - map of the hemispheres.
Globus consists of two main parts — the ball and stand with the axis. Modern school globes, tend to make for fairly a simple stand. But on ancient engravings can be seen very fanciful stand of very expensive materials. Before you start to draw a sketch, consider a few pictures with different globes and choose the one you like best.
The sheet is positioned vertically, as in the globe with a stand height greater than width. Find the center bottom edge of the sheet. From this point draw a vertical line. It should be perpendicular to the bottom edge of the sheet. Line swipe through the entire sheet with a thin pencil.
Define the vertical axis point, which will be the center of the circle. It is located slightly above the middle of the sheet. Draw a circle. It should not reach the side edges.
On the circle draw a coordinate grid. This can be done schematically. One line you already have, it's part of a vertical centerline inside the circle. Between her and the circle, draw 2 arcs, outgoing from the points of intersection of the centerline of the circle. The arc should be of different curvature, but to be on equal distance from each other.
Through the center of the circle perpendicular to the vertical axis draw the line of the equator. Draw Parallels. They can be in the picture only 4 — two above the equator and 2 below. Divide the distance between the equator and one pole into 3 parts. Help the arc through the point that is closest to the pole. The curvature of it should "look" in the direction of the equator. Through the point which marked the second third of the line, do another arc. Do the same for the second part of the figure.
Above the upper point of intersection of the centerlines and the circle, draw up 2 straight lines. They should be on a very short distance from each other. Their length is approximately 1/4 the distance from pole to equator. Do the same under the circle. Finish the axle with two small circles.
Draw an arc of which the axis is attached to the base. To do this, axis will retreat from the circle down a little and draw an arc parallel to the circumference. Lead her to the intersection with the upper part of the axis. Start from the beginning of the arc is still a little down on the centerline and draw another arc, a little bit wider. The ends of the arc, located under the circle, continue straight lines parallel to the bottom edge of the sheet. Finish cuts at about the level of the middle to the vertical axis of the Meridian and connect with a straight line.
Draw a stand. To do this, the outer arc will deviate from the centerline slightly to the side and draw a straight line down. The same line guide on the other side of the axial. The line must be symmetrical. The length of the lines is approximately 2 times greater than the distance between a circle and outer arc.
Below, draw an isosceles obtuse triangle. The top is blunt corner located on the centerline, just above the point of intersection with the bottom line segment of the axis. Side of the triangle is arbitrary, but the lower side should be not less than the distance between near the center of the meridians. Otherwise, the globe will look unstable.
Look at the map of the hemispheres and schematically depict on the globe lines of the continents. Draw Antarctica, trying to follow contours. The picture of the continents will be slightly different from what is on the map because the globe has a curvature. But for a picture it is sufficient if the continents are recognizable.
Paint the globe. The stand can be completely done in black, yellow or gray. Paint the oceans blue and the continents of the paint as it is on a physical or political maps.
Useful advice
For a stylized globe intended for logos, the outlines of the continents can not draw. Stick to the grid.
