1. At Artfare Essentials 2022, a person reaches to pick up pastels from a table covered in brown paper that has been turned into a vibrant colourful landscape with swirling oranges, reds, blues, and greens. People have written their thoughts overtop of the colours with darker shades.
2. Three people wearing masks enthusiastically act out a skit, using twine as a prop. The person on the left holds the twine and looks behind them to the person in the middle who is gathering up the twine. The person on the right reaches up high with the twine. There are colourful art-filled tables in the background.
