To try painting with the rain you will need:

● :: some fairly thick paper, which can cope with getting wet (we’re using sheets torn from our art

journals)
● :: watercolor paints

● :: paint brushes
● :: a few pebbles, or similar, to hold your paper in

place ●::arainyday

Start by painting a design on your paper using your watercolor paints. You can make any design you like. You might like to place your paints very close together, or space them out – or try both and see what dierent eects you can create. Be generous with your watercolor paints, and keep them liquid, adding plenty of water to

blend the colors from your palette.Then quickly, while the watercolors are still wet, take your paper outside. Use some pebbles to hold your paper in place, especially if it’s windy.Then invite nature to join in. It’s pretty cool to collaborate with the rain! Watch as the rain drops change your picture, splattering your colors, making your paint spread and ow, perhaps blending one section of your art into another. Each piece will be unique, and you’ll never know how they will turn out until the rain has added its touch. Try it again with a dierent set of colors, or some dierent painted shapes, and see what you and the rain can create together.

Where Can You Travel if You’re Vaccinated?

Americans who have received a COVID-19 vaccine can travel with fewer restrictions. Here’s what to know.

Can vaccinated people travel? This question has been top of mind for many Americans as millions receive the COVID-19 vaccine each day. After more than a year of social restrictions, canceled trips and postponed events, Americans are eager to start exploring again. But, of course, traveling should come second to safety.

Although health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advise fully vaccinated people to refrain from international travel, there are still multiple countries open to these vaccinated people. (The CDC considers a person fully vaccinated two weeks after his or her final vaccine dose, no matter which brand of vaccine received.) Currently, the CDC recommends vaccines developed by Pfizer (two doses), Moderna (two doses) and Johnson & Johnson (one dose). Vaccines developed by AstraZeneca and Novavax are in Phase 3 clinical trials in the United States. Depending on the country you’re visiting, you’ll

need to supply documented proof of a vaccine (in the form of the record card you receive at your place of vaccination), as well as some additional information. This official documentation will typically allow you to bypass any testing or quarantine requirements.
