Perth Face Painting Jam
2017 was an amazing year for me professionally. I was still so inspired by the face painting convention in Melbourne that year I just didn’t want it to end. I loved the support and community I have experienced during those 4 days of creating with other artists. Back in Perth, I was still inspired but I felt something was missing.
I couldn’t imagine waiting another year to see all my friends back in Melbourne again so I made it my mission to share my passion with other Artists in my area and open up an opportunity for catch-ups.
In December 2017 “Perth Face Painting Jams” was born – A platform which provides face and body artist space to meet up every month. During these sessions, we will try out new designs, learn from another and share our passion for face and body art.
In May 2018 we decided to take it to the next level and created a model base. Before that each artist modelled for another artist and then we would swap the roles but it was very time consuming and some artist would end up without the possibility of painting.
Now we are opening up positions for models to get face painted, create pictures for their portfolio and just having fun together.

NIKI, ARTIST & ADMIN
“Sure everything is available on YouTube and google but I have found community and support within the group which I am very grateful for the bonus of real interaction too is we get to try out each others paint for new colours, try different brushes before buying them, compare setups, share techniques and have loads of fun in the process.”
