Art Sub Plan - Op Lines

 Art Sub Plan - Op Lines

The blog, Kids Art Market, has written up directions for a lesson that could be used by an art sub. Don't you love it when someone else has already done the work and shared it???

Mollie Morrisey based her lesson on the art of Victor Vasarely, the father of op art. She gives basic info about that artist in her blog post. 

It reminds me of another blog post here. It is a one day art lesson with shapes done, not that much unlike, these concentric circles.  I also linked to an art history lesson on Kandinsky that could serve as an intro to the lesson.  You can see that blog post here:  One Day Art Lesson

If you’d like a video to introduce a lesson on concentric circles by Kandinsky, you can check out this video by Alyssa Abel: Concentric Circles with Kandinsky

Easy Elementary Art Sub Plan

Easy Elementary Art Sub Plan

"The worst part of my job is preparing for a sub." That is a statement we can probably all agree with. You need to spend tons of time to describe even the tiniest of directions. That quote is from "Art Project Girl." She made it a little bit easier for you though, by posting this art sub plan. 

It has written instructions, visuals, and uses simple materials. 

It works well as a lesson to use in February as it uses warm and cool hearts as the subject.

Easy Art Sub Plan - Doodling

Easy Art Sub Plan - Doodling

Here is an easy elementary art lesson that a sub could work with. It would be nice to pair it with a book on patterns. You can find more about this lesson at the blog, Dali's Moustache.

Dali’s Moustache used this with first and second graders. They also link to a video for inspiration.

Your art subs will adore you for leaving worksheets for those empty minutes, but you will appreciate them just as much.St. Patrick's Day elementary worksheet. This worksheet is a creative time filler for students who need to occupy themselves when their classwork is complete. The worksheet inclues a lightly drawn outline of a leprechaun, as well as a full sheet drawing of a leprechaun. You may use either. There are also sample details given that the student may wish to include or they may invent their own. A sheet of examples is included so that you do not have to do it yourself. This could be part of a station or center. It could be used in the classroom or art room. All the student will need to provide is pencil, crayons and their imagination.
