The world is once again at war with an invisible enemy that threatens the lives of millions of people as the World Health Organization (WHO) recently declared the coronavirus as a pandemic. Adversities continue to unfold rapidly right before our eyes from a virus we did not expect to.
With the implementation of Enhanced Community Quarantine, everyone is encouraged to stay at home to minimize the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). However, it doesn’t mean that your life should come to a halt or say that you have nothing else to do because you are stuck indoors. This is a great opportunity to rest and ease your mind or learn something new.
In these trying times, innovations from the students and instructors of Asia Pacific College team up to showcase their craft amid the pandemic. Led by Conrado De Jesus, Gehashi Hino Ohashi, and Giuzellie Filoteo, they initiated #QuarantineArt2020, which showcases artistic creations – from traditional art to digital works and other media.
#QuarantineArt2020 is a great avenue to express thoughts and tell stories to show how beautiful things emerge from the worst times. Lose yourself in magic in creating something that you or someone could be needing right now. Remember that art heals.
Students can share their artworks with the hashtag #QuarantineArt2020. Participants do not have to follow the set prompts – just create and show it off to the community! This is an excellent opportunity to help spread positive energy and support one another.
We are privileged enough to be staying warm at home during this global pandemic. Be grateful and maximize your time in doing something that will improve you.
Stick together, but stay apart. Remain indoors to protect others and do your art.
