Covid-19 Isolation Creativity

Although it feels like six years ago, at the beginning of COVID-19 isolation here in Australia, we were looking for some creative ways of engaging with art and culture inside the home.

Someone showed us how people were engaging with paintings and artworks by recreating famous pieces with whatever was around the house.

It gave us a chance to educate our kids on pieces of art (they rifled through books and looked for their favourite pieces), have turns discussing how people were feeling in both the home (being isolated) and in the work itself, and then reaching out to friends as we shared a common experience of being playful.
