Gratefully, I was able to channel my energy and frustrations into art and it has given me motivation and drive again. Even though students may be stuck within their homes, I believe art may be a way to escape the harsh reality and release their pent up stress. I was blessed to be able to direct my attention to creating art, but I soon realized that many students may not have the means to do as I did.
In the hopes of spreading this small joy, I want to provide children with art supplies (such as acrylic paints, watercolors, sketchbooks, and brushes) so that they can also experience creative freedom while being confined in quarantine. I will distribute the art supplies and try to teach beginners online. If it’s possible I would like to hold an exhibition for the pieces that we create. Hopefully, this will also help to prevent the rising numbers of suicides and depression within students of all ages, especially during this time.
