As a sub, I can tell you it's not that hard to keep the kids woking on
projects they have already started if it is not too complicated and they
have a clear idea about how to do it and how much they need to have done.
It is particullarly useful to have the project due at the end of the time
your out so they have some motivation for actually working. This is
probably not the oppinion of many subs, but I am working to be certified to
teach art and enjoy having the kids work on projects rather than a video or
non-related items. It is often easier to go the video route...but if you
have some say in who's subbing for you and can talk to them before you
leave, other options can work.

I have a question about the use of reading and writing in art classes that
my literacy in the content areas class has raised for me. Do practicing
teachers actually use reading and writing in art classes or is it just
something teacher training programs teach you about to then be left behind
once you start actually teaching? How angry would the average high school
art student be if you handed them a 5-page article to read and respond to?
I understand the value of learning about these things, but I am still
wondering about the practicality of it.
