Enthusiasts Find New Ways to Enjoy Art While Museums and Galleries are Shut

Coronavirus has had a significant impact on all industries that of culture and the arts. After most of the museums and galleries across the world shut their doors in March, many art enthusiasts were concerned about how they could enjoy their hobby while they remained at home. This has led to many art lovers to find new ways to appreciate and take part in the art world.

Doing Art Projects at Home
With the coronavirus becoming the biggest challenge to institutions since the war, the current global pandemic has led to more people using art as a way to entertain themselves at home, with many art enthusiasts choosing to create their own art and to get creative. In fact, many museums and art galleries have endorsed this by producing activities for both children and adults, such as drawing and painting guides. To create art at home, you need to get the right equipment first, including crafting items like casting resins, which can be used to make models and jewelry, different types of paints, and brushes and palettes.

Going on Virtual Tours of Art Galleries and Museums
One of the major positives of the pandemic for art lovers is the fact that many museums and art galleries across the world have opened their doors on virtual platforms. Not only does this give regular visitors a way to enjoy their favorite museums, but it also allows people who may not have been able to enjoy art before, either due to their financial situation or their location, a chance to immerse themselves within some of the most famous museums in the world. You can also use these virtual tours to read the information boards that are in museums and educate yourself about the exhibitions that you are looking at. Some of the most famous museums with online tours include the Smithsonian, the Louvre, and the Getty Center. There has also been access to virtual tours of museums through Google Street View.

Watching Live Streams
Many museums and galleries are also finding ways to interact with their loyal followers by creating online content for fans. Many of this is live streamed on their social media pages or can be accessed through their websites. As well as educational resources and research, many galleries are also deciding to commit to live streams, which may include interviews with artists, among other content. Many galleries have also opted to provide podcasts for their devoted members who can help people to keep in touch with their favorite institutions even while they are gone.

Taking Art Courses
However, for many, art is academic, and there has been a boom in the number of free online art courses that you can take. Many of these are at a university level and can help art lovers to learn more about their hobby while the world is on hiatus. From art history to sketching, there is a wide range of both academic and practical courses that you can take for the duration of the pandemic.
