Ace that Social Distancing with Art Fervour's Daily Art Challenges: Daily Challenge #14

Updated: Oct 20

It’s no doubt an unlikely time that we are living in. With the crazy pandemic taking over our peace of mind, it’s like a complete upside down of normal life and yet we have never been more in sync with ourselves than now. Yes, it’s haunting how it took a virus to help us find our grounds and plant the seed of introspection in our otherwise busy life.

We know the drill. Social distancing is the only cure to this madness. Removed from your daily distractions, isolated in the quiet of your room, you may feel like nearing a large bubble of void, but trust Art Fervour to turn this into something really liberating.

With enough time and fresh energy in our hands, you are now endowed with a new pair of eyes that will make you see things you have never noticed before. It’s like a reawakening from the drab reality of labour into the endless possibilities of leisure which can give rise to new creations and new art.


We will be conducting a series of daily challenges over the next few weeks on our Instagram account to make everyone feel connected in these dire times. The purpose of this is to be more receptive of the positivity that envelopes us and to appreciate the small joys that surround us which we often forget to take notice of while navigating our jam-packed lives. The idea of hurry-hurry takes away our ability to savour every moment. It is a reminder that you don't have to necessarily go to some museum or gallery showcasing art to gather inspiration. If you slow down and look around you, you’ll be amazed to find the most genuine piece of art lying unperturbed. It’s simply about stopping and smelling the roses.


Depending on how you define art, you may not consider yourself to be an artist or a creative person but we beg to differ. This new game will make you embrace your own skills while challenging you to create something that’s fun and refreshing.
