The Intro

The Project:
We put a bunch of random words (nouns, verbs, adjectives) into a container and every month we pull out three words as our monthly painting theme. Then we meet once a week to paint.

The Rules
All three words must be incorporated in the painting.

The Purpose:

So that one day we can eventually say “We CAN paint!”

Jenn Taylor
Age: 26
Occupation: Animator
Skill Level: Beginner

Jenn has little experience painting. She enjoyed art as a child, and participated in print-making and drawing. She hasn't regularly painted and is looking forward to the learning process in the coming months.

Mika Bantog

Age: 8

Occupation: Grade 3 Student

Skill Level: Pretty good for a kid.

Mika (aka Nugget) has dabbled in finger paints in her formative years and eventually moved on to using brushes as her dexterity improved.
She enjoys pottery and playing on the monkey bars.

Arlyn Bantog
Age: 32
Occupation: Production Manager

Skill Level: Meh

Arlyn (aka Peanut) used to draw for a living but you wouldn’t know it now. When not sitting in front of a computer at work, she mostly knits and crochets things.

Teen Chan
Age: 23... going on 24
Currently unemployed, but hopefully that will change.
Skill Level:
Shit or Shitty
Teen's favorite quote: The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes --Marcel Proust

Ellery VanDooyeweert
Age: 33

Occupation: Editor

Skill Level: Shitty to Mediocre
Though a 15 year animation veteran, Ellery (EL Rutty) hasn't picked up a pencil in 8 years. However, he is ready to try this whole "art" thing again, if only to live up to his title of "World's Greatest Artist" (given to him by his mother...)
