I don’t know what sort of art things you’re into, but temporary art can generally be done for free and can be quite pleasing, especially if the process is your focus, not the product. These things can require a very low level of fine motor skills and might be easier on stiff joints.

Things like:
- Drawing in sand/dirt with a stick or your fingers
-Sidewalk chalk can be cheap and makes all hard surfaces your canvas
-Building sandcastles or other earthworks
-Arranging stone towers with rocks around your house
-Arranging flowers

You can also take a picture of any of these if you want to keep something of something you made.

I’ve been making things out of cardboard and paper lately! Because I have a lot of cardboard boxes and stuff around and it’s easy to just throw things together with tape. I’m not sure if this would be super helpful for everyone, but I like it because it’s a lot easier to work on projects when I don’t have to buy or choose fancy supplies. It’s a lot easier to just try stuff out when you’re literally working with scraps of cardboard that would otherwise go in the trash.

If you live near a Michael’s craft store, they have REALLY affordable (like around $5) sets of things like watercolor paints and oil pastels.
