After I retired from teaching art, I subbed for my old art teacher friends. It was always helpful to have instructions for how to deal with students with special needs. Here is a website that has lots of help for teaching art to students who have autism. You might include some of this information in your sub plans as needed. Tips for Teaching Art to Students Who Have Autism

|Here are some elementary art lessons that would make great sub lessons for winter and the new year. Some have directions and visuals included and some you will need to tweak a little.|
"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.
"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.
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.

"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.
Here is another complete lesson about Chinese New Year.
