Step inside a different world and discover countless possibilities. For years Castlefest has been a place for those who want to escape from the real world for a bit and this year we will welcome the body- and facepainters to join us. The unique ambiance of this festival is a must vistis experience!
The Body- and Face Art Gathering is a platform for every artist to express his or her creativity and for every visitor to see en enjoy every flavour this art brings.
The program will be further supplemented. Registration for artists and models is necessary at all times. Acceptation of artists and model is in order of registration.
Every artist is responsible for bringing his/her own model and products. Pre-registered models and artists for the battles and other activities will receive an e-ticket shortly before the event starts. After reporting at the information desk with this ticket and a valid ID, it will give him/her access to the festival grounds. There are no extra costs for participating in the battles. Artists and/or models are responsible for their own food and drinks. The festival has a large variation of caterers around the festival grounds.
Every festival day has its own Theme of the Day. There are painters who like the excitement of a competition and painters who happily stay away from the stress of a competition, but would like to have the professional opinion and feedback of a judge and there are painters who just want to paint and show their beautiful art. We would like to give every type of painter a chance to participate to the program, with or without competitive element. Everyone is free to work alongside the program, however, we ask every participant to respect the theme of the day.
Battle with yourself to create your best paint and get feedback, battle with others and go to the judges for points and placement or just paint your heart out.
There will be a special “Best of Castlefest” award to a person who is active on all four days and will be noticed not only by the jugde but also with by the public. It is not necessary to join the battles for this.
Being a new part of Castlefest 2018, we are very happy to see what happens in this first edition of the Body- and Face Art Gathering.
There lots of possibilities to be creative in various ways: join the battles, the groupspaint, jam along and try something new in the experimental tent or participate in the carrousselpaint (join forces with other artists and create a theme image on various models in a certain time frame; every artist gets his or her own model with a specific theme within a certain time frame). The Notepad tent will give visitors the opportunity, with help from experienced models, to explore the bodypaint art on a leg or arm. There will also be workshops. Workshops will be provided by Richard Nijboer on Thursday afternoon, Monique Lily on Friday, Madelyn Greco on Saturday and Lawrence Kelatow on Sunday. Fees for participating in these workshops will be announced later.
Register for the workshops will be possible via this form.
