Unhappy students challenge

I have a subset of unhappy, disruptive and rude students in both of my observational drawing classes this semester. It's a shame for them because it's really a great class if they give it half a chance.

So now my creative energy switches from teaching the art and right brain fun stuff to classroom management which can be fun too, however it's more a left brained activity. I am working out some jump up and draw team activities that will mix up the class and keep them moving and drawing instead of pouting and muttering and displaying operatic gestures of indifference that affect the joie de vivre of the whole class.

What's your favorite team activity that I might apply to these classes?

It will be fun again soon. Onward.
