I've heard this same complaint from many "special areas" teachers, and once-in-a-whle I see or hear about a teacher who is really making it happenin their special areas class. I do hpe we see some other ideas generated here.
I don't teach fine arts, but I've seen some art teachers have their students create videos. They could create videos of a process, or of "how to"draw, for instance. "How to" throw a pot in ceramics, and other ideas come to mind. You'll find many examples here: Kevin Honeycutt's "Art Snacks" site.
You will want to register and join (free) the site to see the examples. Here is a link to one of the art "how to" draw videos there.
History of the arts brings to mind opportunities, and as an example, I recommend the "Women in Art" video.
Using fine art to produce a video is exemplified in the "Wonderful World" video here.
Looking forward to seeing more ideas...
