This is what we got up to during lockdown !
No classroom? No problem!
Helga took part in weekly webinars, live streamed on Zoom at 2:30pm each Tuesday. These sessions allowed for people to follow along with Helga, and to ask questions throughout! Different artists have been involved and the art pieces produced have been wonderful.
Don't worry if you can't make the live stream, as all the sessions are uploaded to YouTube for you to follow at your own pace when you have time!
To keep everyone connected we were using virtual classrooms on Zoom! Everyone was able to take part in interactive lessons, which include both art and wider subjects, and have a good catch up with friends! This kept everyone together and allowed for the students to be social whilst following government guidelines on social distancing.
Other activities occurring on Zoom included choir practice, sewing projects, group chats, small group meetings via zoom and WhatsApp even during the evening, many phone calls, cooking lessons, we started a YouTube Channel, and much more.
I am glad we are back in class though !!
Thank God that's over!!
Cooking and Baking!
Food always helps a situation!
We've also been putting together recipes for people to follow to make tasty treats! This includes a pizza recipe, and a sugar cookie recipe so we could host our own "aArtvark Easter Bake Off"! We've posted some of our favourite pictures below as part of our gallery.
