FPBA Body Painting Challenge

The 2016 body painting competition will be an opportunity of a lifetime as competitors will work in teams: one of the FPBA instructors (or another body painter / instructor who has taught at other conventions and/or participated in the larger championship painting venues) and a small team of rookie body painters! Teams will be randomly created on and announced Tuesday morning at the general session and posted on the bulletin board.
