Well, here we are...at home: working, waiting, eating, homeschooling, TV binging... and then eating and snacking all over again. At times, it feels like one of the only certainties right now is uncertainty. That said, with such a unique experience (which we hope will be over soon), we are presented with unique opportunities. People are getting around to those years-on-the-back-burner projects and others, probably not unlike yourself, find themselves delving into former hobbies and passions —perhaps even trying their hands at NEW hobbies.
And who could forget about the children??? Apart from the oft-daunting task of finding ways to keep ourselves occupied, let's not forget the juggle and struggle of trying to occupy the time of kids and the ever-fleeting attention of said kids.
Fortunately, however, while many of us have been testing the waters of hobbies & passion projects, others have brilliantly made it their goal to provide the diversions and outlets by which we can learn new things1 With that said, and in an effort to help ourselves maintain some semblance of sanity with the added benefit of perhaps learning/trying something new, we'd like to provide you with some of our favorite Quarantine TO DOs for you + the kids! Enjoy
ART CLASS WITH DONALD "DRAWBERTSON" ROBERTSON
One of the best and most creative artists around, Donald teaches you you how to create masterpieces with the simplest of materials: tape, markers, pain, and paper. Funny, colorful, and an aesthetically pleasing approach, it's safe to say Donald's art classes don't disappoint!
