This school system has included a page of printable coloring pages of masterpieces.  This might be a good fill in activity for an art sub.  Here's a link to the page:  Coloring Sheets of Masterpieces

Ted Harrison Paintings

At the blog, Grade ONEderful, this teacher's sub did some amazing things with this class.

I have never had a sub do anything with paint, other than an art trained sub.  I wonder if I should give this a try!

Clowning Around - Emergency Art Sub Lesson

I have left this lesson with my subs for a couple of years now.  They seem to do well with it.

I have uploaded it to TeachersPayTeachers here:  Art Lesson for Subs - Clowning Around

As with all my sub lessons, all you need to do is to print out this 20 page PowerPoint and leave it for the sub.  The only materials they will need are paper, pencil and crayons.  All the directions and visuals for your sub are included.  The sub just needs to read the questions and comments on each slide, and that will direct your students.

The lesson begins with photos of clowns through history.  In order to make an art history connection, I have included a medieval masterpiece of a court jester. Each slide includes questions and statements for the students to think about while creating their drawings.

This lesson would work well as an emergency sub plan as the materials are basic and the directions are complete.  The lesson costs only $3.50 and will save you great amounts of time over the years.

Take care.
