Broken arm comes to art class

One of my Special Ed students has difficulty doing the art projects. Last week he broke his hand and can't write or draw. Not intrinsically motivated, nor Curious to look at picture books, and doesn't like to read. What to do?

    If you can get your hands on an i-pad, there are great drawing apps. He/she could also virtually tour a museum, or play an art related game.

    Agreed with above. iPad all the way, or modify with different, but related items--for example, if students are learning about shapes, get your hands on some tangrams and have him arrange the tangrams on a plain black background with his good hand. Snap a pic of it with your phone/iPad/camera, and print out his artwork! :)

    Everybody works..... I agree with alternate assignments, building blocks, shapes, picking out artwork out of magazines for specific purposes- find a landscape painting that has a lot of clouds in the sky or a cloud project and mark it with a sticky out of these 3 magazines.
