One of the many good things coming out of this COVID-19 situation is the abundance of free art created especially for this time at home. For someone who is just learning how to draw, I’m very much into art and I wanted to post a roundup of what I’ve found mostly by scrolling through Instagram. Keep reading for free printables, a free wallpaper and some cute craft ideas and let me know in the comments what you’ve found. Thanks to all of the artists who’ve provided these beautiful resources to keep us going during this time.

You might have seen this one, but 117 libraries, museums, archives and other cultural institutions around the world have shared free coloring pages featuring images from their collections.
