    So relevant and motivational article it is. Pandemic has changed everything really but the only benefit we got from pandemic is that people are becoming creative, right the challenges have flooded social media and people are spending some quality time with their family. I had no idea about this art and quaratine challenge which you mentioned but i really liked this and i will also try some of my art skills for this challenge though i am not a good artist but i think i can try.
    Thanks for writing this good read. So easy to understand and true to point article. I loved it !!

      Thank you for the positive comments. I agree that one positive aspect of the pandemic has been allowing people to access their own creativity in a way that is difficult during “normal” times when there are so many distractions and so many places to be and people to see. You do not need to be an “artist” to try the getty challenge. I think that was the beauty of it – every day people with every day materials from their households created something pretty and expressed something from within them that would not have otherwise appeared.
