Being Arty -My Very Own Salvador Dali

I like to draw from time to time and always enjoyed art at school (albeit I wasn’t great at it). So regardless of the fact that we are all locked in and trying to keep ourselves occupied, we enjoyed this activity a long time before.

I’m fond of Salvador (Dali)
