In September and October 2020, Museo de Historia, Antropología, y Arte in San Juan delivered a new, fully-online visual arts program, La Vida es un Arte 2.0, (Life is an Art Form 2.0) during strict COVID-19 quarantine and lockdown measures. The program drew in raves from 40 participants who learned how to draw with materials found in the home during 4 two-hour sessions last fall. Through careful planning and continuous refinement, the hands-on museum staff worked through the challenges of remote delivery format, internet access stability, technical support, and delivering an engaging culminating event online. Their innovative thinking led to a unique culminating event that showcased participant work in a 3-D, augmented reality display.
