Here are some pieces from the Quaranzine issues created by Arlington Public Library in Arlington, Virginia. I hope it inspires you to create something amazing.
Art has an unique way of documenting a period of time whether it be a time of happiness or sadness, a historical event, a social war, or even a personal struggle. One can walk through museums, browse through written text, or listen to song lyrics and point out a direct correlation between the art and history.
Here are some examples:
"Four Dead in Ohio" - Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young - Inspired by the events that transpired on the campus of Kent State University in Kent, Ohio on May 4, 1970.
This is a time that few of us have ever experienced. We are sitting in our homes taking classes online. We are wearing face masks and gloves. We are keeping a physical distance from our friends and possibly even our family.
Let us document this time through art. You can submit photographs of your pieces, send copies of your written words, or send links to your songs or videos. We will take these submissions and post them onto this page and share a few on our Instagram account.
There is no deadline for submissions or restrictions on how many you can submit. If you continue to send your work, we will continue to post. Send all submissions to Pam at firstname.lastname@example.org with the email subject heading "art submission."
It's Tuesday and that means it's time for another challenge.
This challenge is in honor of National Poetry Month.
Do you know such musicians or poets as Lennon, Mercury, Poe, or Shakespeare? We want to test your knowledge of musicians and poets. Read the lyric and determine if it was written by a musician or poet. Afterwards you can see how you scored against the rest of your peers. Good luck!

I want to give a shout out to East Hampton Public Library for creating this challenge! They wanted to hear how their teens were helping themselves, their community, and the world. They willingly shared it with libraries across the country in an attempt to serve all teens.
Directions: This challenge is for all teens who are in grades 6-12. There are 50 activities with a point system. Throughout your time at home, you can participate in the challenge and earn points. When you submit an activity, provide your full name, your grade, the activity number with response, and the date. To submit, email me at email@example.com using the subject line “The Social Distancing Challenge.” I will keep track of your responses and post a leaderboard on the teen website on a weekly basis. The person who earns the most points by the end of the challenge will be declared winner. You have until April 28, 2020 to submit your activities.
