Art Sub Lessons for the New Year

Seeking art lessons for after winter break? Here ya go. Here are some elementary art lessons that would make great sub lessons for the new year. Some have directions and visuals included and some you will need to tweak a little.
art sub lesson winter


"Winter landscapes by 1st grade - one day project" by Mrs. Knight's Smartest Artists. One day lessons can make great sub lessons.  This one makes such a gorgeous work of art. Paint isn't a great medium for subs, but can be substituted with crayons or markers.  If you will let your sub use markers, make sure you  leave lots of instruction about how the students should use them.
"Snowman Directed Drawing Art Activity," by Proud to Be Primary. This blog post includes both written directions and plenty of visuals.  Crayons or markers can easily replace the paint used in the blog post.



"A Cup of Fantasy," at Arteascuola.  These painted cups are so colorful.  I am sure they can be recreated in crayon or marker.  You could make step-by-step visuals pretty easily for this one.



"How to Draw Penguins," by Cassie Stephens.  In this blog post, Cassie gives visuals, including a step-by-step one for how to draw the simple penguin shapes.  Students add whatever details they think up, so these can all be individualized.


"Patterns for the New Year," by Strong Rock Elementary Art Gallery blog.  This teacher gives an overview of this lesson about goals for the new year.  You could provide your sub with simple visuals and directions to go along with this lesson.

"Chinese New Year - Year of the Dog," by Centers and Early Finishers.  This is a complete lesson with visuals and script at TeachersPayTeachers.

Art Sub Lesson - Special Needs - Christmas Ornaments

Trying to figure out lessons for my special needs students was always a challenge, but trying to figure out something for a sub to teach them was way more difficult.

Just now I saw this art activity which would be totally do-able by a sub (with assistants...You do have assistants in there with you, right?).  It looks like a no fail lesson.

You still have to do some prep, but if you don't mind that, it should be all good.

Art Sub Plan - Robots in Winter (or Christmas)

Here is a winter activity that  elementary kids will have fun creating. It was written so that it could be used as a winter drawing lesson for an art sub or as a learning center activity.

Students often ask if they can do a Christmas art lesson. This activity is geared as a winter activity, but the student could turn it into a Christmas one.

You can find it at the Teachers Pay Teachers store:Centers and Early Finishers.

Art Sub Plan - The Colorful Art of Bruce Gray

 Art Sub Plan - The Colorful Art of Bruce Gray

I just recently discovered the art of Bruce Gray and I am in love. 


He is mainly a sculptor, but paints as well. Check out his website here: brucegray.com

He has done a lot of work that has been featured on tv and in movies. You can see all about that on his site. You can also buy art right from him there! (I am going to have to save up to buy the pieces I really, really want, but he also has reproductions.)



He seems to be a good guy. On his site, he has some pages of student work that was inspired by his own work. I thought that was pretty cool that he would do that.


Anyway, I asked him if I could create an art lesson featuring his work and he said yes! What a nice guy. You can check that out at my TeachersPayTeachers shop: Art Sub Lessons.

Halloween Art Sub Lesson or Creative Art Center Activity

Looky! Another art lesson you can teach for Halloween! This, of course, can be taught anytime, but since it features pumpkins, it seems time appropriate.

Written as a creative center activity, it can also be used for an art sub.
