Are you an artist? Do you make paintings, drawings, videos, music, stories, or more? Join in on Augusta’s newest adventure – The Pandemic Art Collective! Created by Rhian Swain, artist and owner of RedWolf Advertising here in Augusta, this group asks artists to create work based on a weekly theme. Once finished, the pieces are all added to the Pandemic Art page! Everyone is invited to participate – all genres of Art!
A note from Mo: When I became the Kennedy Center Education Artist-in-Residence, I didn’t realize the most impactful word in that title would be ‘Residence.’ With millions of learners attempting to grow and educate themselves in new circumstances, I have decided to invite everyone into my studio once a day for the next few weeks. Grab some paper and pencils, pens, or crayons. We are going to doodle together! I’ll see you at 1pm ET weekdays for LUNCH DOODLES and I hope you’ll keep making art even after my visit!
The Book Tavern is committed to helping those stuck inside during social distancing. They’ve got several ways to help you get that next novel without leaving your home! Order from them online, on the phone, over email, and if you’re an audiobook fan they’ve got you covered there too!
Going into a self-quarantine can have many complex issues and complications beyond having enough food and supplies for two weeks. In terms of entertainment, it also probably means you’re in for a lot of boredom, a lot of Netflix, and a lot of browsing the internet. But there is a way to get a little culture and education while you’re confined to your home. According to Fast Company, Google Arts & Culture teamed up with over 2500 museums and galleries around the world to bring anyone and everyone virtual tours and online exhibits of some of the most famous museums around the world. All you have to do is sit on the couch and enjoy!
