This month is a celebration of our Inspiration to Paint Family, this community of worldwide Artists that have allowed us all to stay connected and supported during this crazy year.
As we do not have an “official” sponsor this month, I am inviting any who would like to contribute a small prize, so the prize itself is from the community too. Any small unused item is welcome, or even a donation of a few dollars will go toward creating a prize pool. If the donations add up to more than the normal value of our monthly prize, additional smaller prize packs will be set up for other challenge participants too! 🙂
Let’s celebrate making it to the end of 2020 with our friends!
~Wednesdays are ITP Family themes (highlighted with blue). The Info Posts in the ANNOUNCEMENT section of the group will have more details about these special themes meant to help us share our lives and traditions with each other.
~~Body Painting is only allowed when specified on the calendar, this includes backs and belly paints! Body Paint models should be 18 years of age or older, please!
~On ANY theme day, please try to keep the subject matter suitable for general audiences. Please remember that we have members of all ages and backgrounds in the group. Also, please try to avoid controversial statements and comments when posting in the group. We ask for a NO POLITICS policy in posts and comments, please. If you have any problems, do not engage with the post, just report the post or comment and/or tell the admin team, and trust that we will deal with it.
~Info on optional Extra Contests will be posted in the groups in the ANNOUNCEMENT section, so look out for those (highlighted with bright yellow) Most contests will have a special album to post your entries. Contest participation is NOT required, but is a chance to win extra prizes. Just relax and have fun with the contest themes. Remember, you lose nothing by entering.
Any questions about the challenge, ask in the Inspiration to Paint Family group or ask your admin team.
Please remember to be KIND to others and to YOURSELF!!! Putting down your own work also affects others who are inspired by you! No need to apologize for a “bad” design or look for faults…look for the positive things, or lessons you learned instead. 🙂 ❤
The whole point of the group is to INSPIRE you to practice and paint as often as possible! So if you miss a day (or two, or five….), keep on painting and posting, as often as you are able for the month!
Your hashtags for the month should be included on every daily post. It is helpful to save them to a “note” on your phone or computer, so it’s easy to copy and paste them into your post each day.
For this month, the Official hashtags are:
#(Your first name and your December participation number) with NO spaces. For example, mine is #Marie9 Note: Find your participation number in the Facebook message you were sent when you signed up.
#(Your hometown or area and FacePainter) with NO spaces. Example: #ChicagoFacePainter
