Virtual Dating for Art Lovers: Connecting Through Creativity
Are you an art lover who’s feeling lonely during the pandemic? If so, virtual dating can be a great way to connect with like-minded individuals from around the world. From online museum tours to live streaming art events, there are plenty of ways to explore creativity together in these strange times.
As a self-confessed art fanatic, I’ve found that virtual dating has brought me closer to people who share my passion. Let me tell you my personal experience with Virtual dating for art lovers.
Date One: Gallery Hopping
For my first virtual date, I suggested we go on a tour of some of our favorite galleries. We took turns screen sharing our chosen websites and talked about what it was that drew us to each piece. It felt just like we were walking through the same exhibit space together!
If you’re unsure where to begin with online galleries – check out Google Arts & Culture or The National Museum Of Women In The Arts which has many exhibits available virtually.
Date Two: Paint and Sip (Online Style)
For our second date, things got more hands-on as we tried out “paint and sip” night – virtually! We both ordered the same painting kit beforehand and then followed along while on Zoom as instructors taught us how to create works inspired by Monet’s Water lilies or Matisse lives The Dream for example.
It was fun seeing how different each other’s paintings came out while sipping wine and chatting away. Not only did we connect over creating something new together but also over learning from one another in those intimate conversations about technique preference etc.,What could have been awkward moments felt completely natural thanks so chatbox feature which allowed us easy conversation when necessary without breaking flow!
Date Three: Live Streaming Events
Our third date was probably my favorite- watching LIVE STREAMING performances from ballets or operas being performed halfway across the globe! The experience was deeply moving, and discussing the performances felt like an extension of the actual show.
It’s remarkable that this is even possible – live streaming shows allow you to catch performances from some of the best companies around the world – Royal Opera House or Bolshoi Theatre to name a few.
Date Four: Online Art Classes
For our fourth date, we decided it was time for us to get more hands-on with our art. We signed up for an online acrylic painting class with course instructor! While working on our own pieces we could hear her voice-over demoing technique or lifting us up from a drop when things didn’t go as planned!
Being artistic novices this was very comforting. In essence, each class doubled as a mini therapy session-another precious bonding point in our Covid-era relationship.
Virtual Dating Works
All told, virtual dating has been hugely successful for me when exploring my creative side. I believe it’s because I’m able to interact with others in a focussed environment that fosters exploration of shared interests – and therefore deeper conversations than just typical small talk!
There are plenty of ways art lovers can virtually connect while still experiencing beauty firsthand without putting themselves at risk. And who knows? You may even find that someone who shares your artistic passion on your virtual journey ends up being someone special!
