Did you hear that creaking sound? It’s the sound of people peeking out of their doors; curious about what might be going on outside! Or maybe they were just picking up their grocery delivery… Depending on where you live right now, life may be showing some signs of normalcy again. Or maybe it’s still not the right time for you to venture out just yet.
Fortunately, these in-between days are also modern ones; and that means distance is no longer a barrier to enjoying the arts. Stay in your pajamas, keep your brain engaged and entertained, and help support the people and organizations dedicated to bringing us a ray of light in these uncertain times.
Here are just a few of our favorite unique online experiences that are happening in the coming weeks.

Why not let your kids teach you a thing or two as they watch Ash and Taran create delicious treats in their weekly live baking classes? Aged 14 and 6 respectively, we’ll bet these two will bring some new sweets into your kitchen that’ll turn out way better than that bland loaf of bread you were planning.
September 10 (repeats monthly)
The art of storytelling is timeless; as old as humanity itself. Hosted by comedian Emmett Montgomery, this monthly event brings you strange and inspiring true-life tales.
