Rob to the Rescue....
Rob from Art for Kids has a lot of really great "draw along" videos. I love that he draws along with at least one of his own kids so it is super kid friendly. He also has lessons broke down into different age groups and mediums.
Our last 11:30 dismissal was earlier this fall. My 5th graders drew along to create an awesome owl.

My 6th graders drew along to create a tough looking football player.

While these work great for as a time filler I have struggled with how I could make this into a creative activity. I solved this dilemma by turning the project into a contest. Each class drew along with Rob in during class time and then were given the following week (until I saw them again) to finish it in the coolest way possible. Each grade level had the top 3 projects selected for a prize...
