If you find yourself with some extra time on your hands after work or on the weekends, why not consider delving into some creative projects in your apartments? Whether you’re more interested in writing or painting calls out more to you, there is definitely an abundance of ideas you should take advantage of to do within the comforts of your apartments in Oakland:
1. Get into some creative writing. Pick a topic and pair up an emotion with it, and let the words flow naturally. If you need guidance when it comes to writing, simply Google “creative writing prompts” to get some ideas. And if you come up with something that you think is half-decent, submit it to Forth Magazine, who is currently open to submissions.
2. Try painting a masterpiece. This involves a short trip to the closest art store or no traveling at all if you order the materials on Amazon prime. For beginners, I recommend painting with acrylics. To get some inspiration, check out contemporary artist Darren Downing to see what’s “in” in the current art world.
3. Redecorate your apartments. Once you’ve gotten spring cleaning out of the way, you can focus on personalizing and customizing. Check out Pinterest and Laser Gnomes for ideas and solutions to sprucing up your apartments.
