Why it took me so long to find a forum like this, I don't know

Post by Dana on Fri Jun 04, 2010 11:23 am

Hi everyone, I have been creeping this forum for the past few days and I love it. So many useful ideas and tips. There isn't much of a face painting scene here in BC (at least that I am aware of) so it's nice to be able to collaborate with others at least in an online fashion.
I have only been face painting independently for about a year and a half, worked at a party company prior to that (which is good in a way because I was able to learn and practice) for about 4 years part time. This isn't my full time job, I'm in school right now training to become a science teacher (almost done!) so my ultimate goal is to be an educator BUT I have an artistic side in addition to my scientific side and face painting is a great way to be artsy. I don't have any formal training but I'm hoping there will be some local face painting/body art workshops in the near future. I have much to learn though so any advice is always appreciated!

Hi Dana-

Welcome to the forum! Sounds like you're having fun!!! I spent 20 years in business and then found face painting..... it's a great creative outlet. Take care!

It's a friendly group overall so after you look around and explore put your specific questions in the topic.... or get going in the TAG game or a contest for fun.

Yeah Dana, what part of BC are you in? There's quite a few of us in the lower mainland anyway. Kristal is in Surrey and I'm in Mission. I know a few others too that aren't on the forum yet. If you're in the LM we could set up a jam sometime. Kristal and I have done that in the past.
