Many people are experiencing a huge challenge in their life styles: being indoors all the time because of a quarantine. Being apart from the people we interact with on a daily basis, stop going to the places our daily routine and duties take us to is just part of the emotional and physical change most of the people are going through at the moment.
Working from home has turned two or three times more time consuming. Interacting with others only through video chats has been the daily routine so far. The news show growing numbers, expectations for flat curves, and a few hints that there is a clear light at the end of the tunnel.
In the meantime, what are we doing to kill time? What if you give a try to enjoying a hobby that you have put off for a some time (or a long time)? Art has always been a refuge for those who wish to get away from routine, to feel lighter and relax, to clear out their minds and explore a different way to express emotions, dreams or just to release the tension of the day.
Here is my list of recommended top 5 things to do during a quarantine:
Learning to draw is supposed to be difficult but it doesn't take forever to learn. You will be amazed at how quickly you progress. No matter where you are, you won't believe your eyes!
You will find over 100 free online art classes which you can follow. Most lessons have a text tutorial and a narrated time lapse video for you to follow.
How to create a cartoon character with photomanipulation and retouching, how to make facial features pop out with retouching, how to make your photos come alive, how to change the lighting in a photo, how to make your portraits out of this world!
This will help you how you can build whatever DIY project you want, without spending days of months looking for a plan or spending a fortune hiring someone to do it for you. It might sound crazy, but you'll see by yourself how you can build anything out of wood easily without a large workshop or expensive tools.
