Quaranzine is a weekly collection of creative works from the Arlington community that documents how we responded to this strange time we find ourselves in. Submit your own work.
Sofia Garmize, "Thank you Doctors!" - Sofia is 6 years old and she is a student at the Arlington Science Focus School. The title of the work is "Thank you dokters!" (aka Thank you doctors!).
Noah Hessling, "Worries" - This sort of spiraled from all my worries about Covid. But, I’m still trying to persevere in spite of these worries.
Alexander Lachhab, "The Lucky Fish" - Alexander is a three year old boy and loves to draw! This is the lucky giant fish, where you can wish on it and it will come true! It brings luck, and he loves to draw, especially when he is stuck inside!
David Moss, "You're Too Close" - A reminder about social distancing.
Azad & Anoushka Gohn, "Corona Collage" - Azad (8) and Anoushka (6) each created a 6-part art project with Covid-19 depicted in drawing, with craft material, in painting, in modeling clay, in shrinky-dink, and in rice-krispy treat.
Kimberly Lovo, "Keep ‘Em Glowing" - Basically a new version of all the “Save the Environment” posters and mottos you see at schools.
Kyra Swanson, "Sun Mosaic" - Made with recycled cardboard.
Theo Mota-Clem, "How Was I To Know?" - A poem I wrote while in my 5th week of quarantine.
Sloane Cowart, "Around the World" - Poem by Sloane Cowart (almost 6 years old).
Leila Mihelich, "The Scream 2020" - Copy of famous painting "The Scream" by Edward Munch. Crayon on notepad. Artist is six years old.
Lucas Braunger, "Germie the Badie" - Lucas spends some of his time inside being creative, such as drawing things like Germie the Badie.
Amelie Shiao, "Room" - It’s a drawing of a dinosaur in a snow globe on someone’s wardrobe. The dinosaur has been there all its life and it’s never went outside but it’s fine with that. Just like you’re inside your home.
Abigail Murphy, "Time Blurs" - Watching time go by through my window—separated from both the world outside and the disease
Vedica Chudiwale, "Boat of Light" - These fruits are on a boat watching the sky as it is lit with fireworks. Even though I made this before this whole pandemic began, the fruits are still ripe, and I hope it gives you inspiration like it gives me inspiration - that we can’t give up during these times.
Tommy Wonnacut, "Ikky" - An ikky is an alien that is very friendly.
Mina Dowler, "We are Together" - This is a group of elephants walking in the middle of the night with their trunks holding on to the tail of the elephant in front of them. They are under a starry night and a full moon. I painted it because I thought it would be fun and it would keep me busy, so that I am not bored.
Marylynne Lay, "The Door, the Mouse and the House" - I wrote the poem because when we were eating dinner the door shut. That made this poem come into my head, and I kept trying different words until I came across this poem. The title is like the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, a book we just finished reading.
