It’s never too late to pick up a new hobby! The Mansions at Spring Creek invites residents of our Garland, TX apartment community to try something new this month and develop new skills. We are highlighting four different ideas in today’s blog post. However, don’t feel limited to only these options.

Whether you want something to post on Instagram or you just want to see the world in a new perspective, pick up a camera (you don’t even need anything fancy to start with!) and go searching for an adventure, a story, or a landscape to document visually. Try these tips for beginner photographers to guide you.

Calligraphy is a skill that can help you be more precise and thoughtful in your movements. It can be an artistic outlet, even if you don’t feel like you can be artistic in other ways, like painting. Try these 8 tips for anyone who wants to learn calligraphy and hand-lettering from BuzzFeed for help on your journey of beginning calligraphy.

Learn a new language
Learning a language is tough work that you can always be learning and improving at, whether you’re increasing your vocabulary, working on your accent, learning grammar rules, or totally immersing yourself in the language to become more fluent. Whatever your purpose, learning a language can help expand your worldview while improving your mind and speaking habits. Download an app like Duolingo or ask someone you’re around often who speaks another language to speak more of that language with you to start your process.

Painting can be a great way for you to create something beautiful and learn about colors, nature, and your perspective on the world. You don’t even have to be limited by painting on a canvas if you don’t have the funds or incentives to invest in the necessary supplies. Try an app, such as ArtRage or KRITA, to get started.
