Oh, boy. Teachers are wondering what to do with their antsy art classes this last week before winter break. Don’t give up and give them over to videos. Fun art lessons for that last week before Christmas vacation can be had at this TPT shop: Centers and Early Finishers.

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.

Art Sub Plan - Mitten Art

Here is an art lesson that was written by a fourth grade teacher.  Her school does not have an art teacher, so she supplements art when she can.  

This lesson would be perfect for a sub.
