5 Ways to make this Lockdown Eventful and Safe


Gone are the days when outdoor hobbies were a thing, thanks to the Pandemic! With easy access to the internet, one can master an array of creative crafts, some of which have been around for generations.

Have you ever which activity to take up while the entire country has gone into lockdown? We’ve included some age-old favourites here, if you choose to step out of your comfort zone, to help you find your inner creative self. Give any of these a try!

1. Marker Art:

Illustrators, designers, and artists commonly use art Markers to produce an output vastly different from the one created using coloured pencils.

Why try it:

  • Very simple to use and requires very little prep time.
  • If you like hand-lettering, calligraphy, and technical illustrations and want freedom from your usual pen, then this is a must-try.

How to get started:

  • Grab a set of 20 colours, ideally to get started off
  • Ps. Start by watching this basic video on how you can propel your Art Marker journey into existence : Marker Art For Beginners

2. Acrylic Art:

Acrylic Art can be used on surfaces like canvas and wood, metal, fabrics, ceramics, etc.

Why try it:

  • Have you ever thought about personifying your thoughts on a canvas, whether leaves from your neighbour's balcony or flowers meant for worship, abstract hearts, and starry nights? It would be best if you gave this a try.

How to get started:

  • Acrylic Paints.
  • Paintbrushes.
  • A Painting Surface - canvas, wood, paper.
  • An Artist Palette.
  • Rags/Paper Towels.
  • Cup or Jar of Water.
  • Soap for clean-up.
  • Varnish.

Ps. You can get started today by watching this video:  Acrylic Painting.

3. Spray Paint:

Spraying paint is deceivingly simple to do but very difficult to perfect. 

Why try it:

  • There isn't a quicker, more convenient way to paint small - medium-sized parts and projects than with spray paint. The challenge, though, is applying a smooth, even coat of paint without runs, drips, and errors.

How to get started:

  • Grab 3-4 spray paints with a painted board, a plastic bag, and a lid, as mentioned in this video here: Spray Paint.

4. Oil Pastels

Oil pastels are an alternative method of painting or drawing. Easy and messy-free to take up whenever you want to.

Why try it:

  • If you don't want to start with the above options, consider Oil Pastels, as all you need is a set of crayons, sketchbooks and erasers.

How to get started:

  • You only need a set of 25 colours and an acid-free sketchbook. Do check out this video to start your pastel journey.


5. Poster Colour Drawing:

Poster paint is an inexpensive version of tempera paint. It is water-based, dries to a chalky rather than a glossy finish, and is impermanent.

Why try it:

  • The most common form of paint used in School when you were a kid. You can as well get your hidden painter kid outside.

How to get started:

  • Material Used - Camel Poster Colour 
  • Flat Brush & Round Brush 
  • Ivory sheet
