If you HAVE already received your participation number for March, your challenge information can be found below. There are downloadable PDF versions of the calendar and translated versions of the theme lists available, too. (Find the download section below the photos of the calendar).

Attention! Signups for the MARCH Challenge WILL CLOSE on March 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 March 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 APRIL challenge in the later part of March.

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.

~~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 March 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

#sparklingfaces (for our March sponsor)
