The COVID-19 pandemic has taken away our liberty to go outside of our house and do whatever we like to enjoy and have fun. Unfortunately, the pandemic seems to be far from over, and it is best not to risk our own safety by staying indoors. The downside of locking ourselves up at home is that we don’t get to participate in activities in which we can develop our skills and self-esteem. Staring at the four corners of your room from day to day sure wouldn’t help you.
However, you can use all your free time inside the house for more productive things. Speaking of enriching your skills, there are ways for you to get more experience even without going outside. If you are into visual arts, this is the best time for you to join art competitions, which are now being held online due to the threat of the pandemic.
Be A Little More Competitive To Develop Your Talent
Some newbie artists use their art to express their feelings and emotions. For some, making their art is their way to feel better after a rough day, and some just make art to have fun. However, if you really want to pursue art and gain more experience, it is time for you to get out of your comfort zone and be more competitive. For one, joining art contests will be your first step to success. This gives 222 meaning to your life.
Of course, like in every contest, there will only be one winner and there will be losers. However, if your aim is to develop your artistic skills, losing in your first art contest shouldn’t feel like you’re a sore loser. Instead, treat yourself as a winner by merely participating in that contest. There will be many things you can learn from this experience, such as techniques and new possible subjects for your future artworks. While your fellow participants are your competitors for the top prize, you will also learn a lot from them.
Now that many art competitions are being held online, it will be much easier and safer for you to join these contests. Just take note of the contests’ requirements before you can join. No matter what happens, there will always be one magnificent artwork coming from you. At the end of the day, you can give this art as a present to your loved ones.
