April 2021 Challenge Information

If you HAVE already received your participation number for April, your challenge information can be found below. I am trying out a new format for the monthly themes, in list form rather than calendar format. There are downloadable PDF versions of the theme list and translated versions of the list available, too. (Find the download section below the photos of the theme list).

Attention! Signups for the APRIL Challenge WILL CLOSE on April 5th! To officially participate in the Inspiration to Paint challenge on Facebook, you need to SIGN UP to receive a participation number for the month. If you have NOT signed up yet, please send a message to us here: http://m.me/InspirationtoPaint/

If you do NOT have a April participation number, you may still follow along if you want the practice, but please share your work in our “Inspiration to Paint FAMILY” group here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/inspirationtopaintfamily/, instead of the Main Challenge group! You do not need to use any hashtags if you aren’t officially signed up.

Signups will reopen for the MAY challenge in the later part of April.

If you are not signed up, you may only share your work in the Inspiration to Paint Family group and will not qualify for the monthly prize. You MAY enter the optional mini contests, if you like.

Any small unused item is welcome, or even a donation of a few dollars will go toward creating a prize pool.

October Challenge Information

Check the group “Announcements” section of the group often throughout the month for challenge Info posts, sponsor info, and contest details. The ITP Info Album for the month will be pinned there in the main group. 

As the month of October is a time for all things Halloween, there are several daily themes that may produce more scary/gory/creepy designs.

We DO understand that some of you may have religious or other objections to painting those types of designs! If so, feel free to adapt those themed days to something “Fall/Autumn” related or a milder version of the theme that you would be comfortable with. Also, if seeing those types of posts in the group are a trigger for you, you may submit the entries for your daily work, directly to an admin on those days.

For our Artists who LOVE to create the super Creepy designs, to help those who are triggered by those images, if you are sharing a design for your daily entry that is extra creepy or contains gore, please try to post only your TEXT to the group wall, and include the Photo in the COMMENTS. This will help keep the creepy photos from popping up on people’s news feeds if they are following the group.

We just ask, that regardless of personal views on the different types of makeup done at this time of year, that everyone remains respectful of the effort and technique of the Artists and the work they create. We love the atmosphere of respect that we have here in our ITP Family!

Photos of your Daily Entry should be posted to the “Discussion” section in the Main Inspiration to Paint group here: www.facebook.com/groups/Inspirationtopaintbyabby

Questions, extra photos or videos, and other non-challenge related posts should be added in the Inspiration to Paint Family group here: www.facebook.com/groups/InspirationtoPaintFamily/

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 October 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

#SmileCreatorsFacePainting (for our October Sponsor)
