Imagination Lockers

This is a lesson from Lisa Marie at Art Class with LMJ.  I can tell that this would be a hit with my older kids.  They create both the inside and the outside of the locker.  She does ths lesson with 5th and 6th grade.  She's written the post in a way that you could give it right to a sub and they should be able to take it from there. 

Thanks so much for sharing the idea, Lisa Marie. 


By the way, I found graphics to use with lesson by doing a Google image search for "imaginary school locker."  There were a lot of graphics out there that would work.

Chinese Dragon Collage

I need a kindergarten sub plan for this week.  I think my sub could do this one.  I'll ask my librarian to suggest a book to go with this.  The lesson idea is over on the blog, The Bird Nest.


What's in Your Head?

Here's an idea I think my fifth graders would enjoy.  The lesson is called, "What's in Your Head," by Tammy Willis.  This lesson is over at the Incredible Art Department.

Loopy Line Fish

This is a find from Art Project Girl.  She says it should take a half hour or so.  Coupled with a book or video about fish, you could add on the needed time.  Or you could give this to your sub in case they need something to fill in the time.

Another easy way to prepare for an art sub is to go to my shop, Art Sub Plans. I have created complete lessons in which all your sub has to do is read the slides and follow the directions.  They are full of visuals and are created to be used with the most simple supplies.  Pencils, paper and crayons are all your students will need to create imaginative works of art.

These are perfect for those emergency absences when you do not have the time to write detailed plans but want to leave quality plans for your subs.

Kindergarten Lesson.....Wheels

This is a kindergarten lesson by Rina at the blog, K-6 Art.

She gives such good directions, I think a sub could do this one.
