At the beginning of 2020, the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 had a great impact on our lives. We have gone through home quarantine for up to six months, and we strictly abide by health guidelines to wear masks in public and to maintain a safe social distance. I know that is not a good experience, but to let everyone could spend Christmas happily and warmly even during the epidemic, The Vancouver Art Gallery has launched an activity- Art at Home. It aims to use your unique and rich creativity to encourage you to explore and create with your family at home. I believe art has the power to bring us together. Imagine that, in your free time, creating a painting with your parents and family which must be the best day.
You can not only show us your painting or work but also tell us your interesting stories and share the beautiful story that art brings to you. Also, I have many different forms of participation.
On specific Wednesdays, we have another program about Art at Home, Family Planning Coordinator Christina Jones will share stories about the incredible lives of artists and their artistic methods at the Live Art at the Home conference on zoom. He will show us the power of storytelling through art. Also, when you discover new activities you can try with your family, and share with us!
If you want to share your creations with us please tag The Vancouver Art Gallary and Art at Home on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Then we can find your work. There are many different themes for the activity. If you want to learn more information, Please visit https://www.vanartgallery.bc.ca/. Or if you have some questions, please feel free to contact us. I am looking forward to your creation!
