~New hashtags for the month, check the peach box on the 2nd page of the calendar!

~Be sure to read ALL the details on the theme days so you don’t miss something 😉 

This month is sponsored by some of our ITP Family members, who are part of the newly renamed “365 and Beyond” group

These group members challenged and supported each other to complete the goal of painting every single day in 2020, without grace days! You may have seen them using the #365in2020 tag to cheer each other on in their goal. 🙂

Let’s thank them for giving back as sponsors and help them celebrate their goal achieved!

~Thursdays are Sponsor’s Choice themes (highlighted with blue) with BONUS prizes! Please be sure to also add your photo on Thursdays into the dated ALBUM, to be entered into a RANDOM drawing for a bonus prize. The Info Posts in the ANNOUNCEMENT section of the group will have more details about these special themes chosen by our sponsors.

~~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 and challenge yourself a bit more. 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 January 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:  #newjerseyfacepainter

#365andbeyond (for our January sponsors)
