From meditation to social media, people from all walks of life are searching for ideas to spend their time during the coronavirus lockdown.

Artists, who were not getting much time to shape their creativity, now have much time to explore staying at home.

Apart from the experienced hands, newcomers are also shaping their imagination with perfect expression of their core feelings staying at home without any disturbance.

Sketching and painting are considered intellectual ways to pass time and it is needless to say that the benefits are plenty.

Here are some persons from different sections of life who are very passionate to spend their leisure time in creativity.
