Concerts are postponed, sporting events are cancelled, schools are closed and tourist hot spots are shut down, shopping malls are temporarily closing, the usual noisy streets are silent. The pandemic has taken hold over the world.
While we are stuck at home, doing nothing but the best to not get bored. It is the perfect time to unleash the inner artists in us. Rather than sit and binge watch on Netflix all day, why not do something productive at home?
Today, let’s take a look at some few art activities you can do during the home quarantine.
Start with something easier
Don’t take on more than you can handle at first. This way, you make sure that you leave room to build up to more challenging projects. Plus, as you do, you’ll feel more comfortable with certain tools, techniques and supplies.
Look for inspiration in life and online
Let’s take the fact, we all love using Internet resources like Pinterest and Instagram for project inspiration, there’s also plenty to be had day-to-day, too. Try taking influence from nature and those around you—you may be surprised at what you find.
Remember, there are no rules
Most of us have a need to create. Whether you’re someone who wants to de-stress after a hard day working, a parent who just wants something to do when the kids are in bed or a millennial who loves making, there’s something for you. The great thing about crafting, like any art form, is there are no rules.
Take on a challenge with friends
Finding ways to connect with your friends and family right now is important and taking on a craft challenge virtually as a team may be just the thing you need. Why not pick a group of friends, come up with a collective idea everyone can execute from home and then share your final creations together? Like a book club, but for crafts…
Always remember that while you are doing your best to do some amazing art activities at home, it is still best to do it in the cleanest way. Make sure your area is clean and that you sanitise before and after your activity.
