Art is a great way to channel your creative side, relieve stress, and express your emotions. There are a number of ways to express your inner artist and find peace of mind. For example, acrylic paints and a canvas are a great way to make paintings for your home. Or, you channel childhood simplicity with an adult coloring book, full of intricate and fun designs.

It’s best to approach art with openness. Know that your artwork doesn’t have to be perfect and allow yourself to make mistakes and try new things. Experiment with a number of art forms such as painting, drawing, sculpting, or making collages, and find what brings you the most happiness and peace. 

With the stress and isolation that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many to experience, there is no better time than now to look into the mental health benefits of creating art. Not only can art curb boredom during times like these, it can also give you an outlet to explore your emotions and channel your stress. So, pick up a paintbrush or a pencil, and bring some color into your life!
