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 May 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 JUNE 2022 challenge in the later part of May.

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.

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 May 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
