Welcome to the JAMvention!

The warmest, most colorful and budget-friendly face-and bodypaint even in Europe since 2008

All participants have the opportunity to attend an array of informative and fun workshops hosted by top artists from around the world. JAMvention’s fabulous hospitality, informal, friendly atmosphere, not to mention the delicious home cooked meals, all for the budget-friendly price of €280,- (bed, food, drinks and workshops inclusive) are what makes it one of the very best face and body painting events around. There are a limited number of spaces available, so if you want to be certain of securing your place, book your ticket as soon as possible!

Facepaint In Progress, or FIP for short, was founded in 2008 to promote professional face and body painting. Organizing and hosting the JAMvention, as well as providing and overseeing the face and body painting at Elfia Arcen and Haarzuilens, all serve to implement this.

We are looking forward to welcoming all of our regular visitors back as well as the increasing number of new attendees, from beginner to advanced professional painters.

A warm welcome awaits you all at the next edition of the JAMvention. THE warmest, most colorful and budget-friendly, face and body paint event in Europe!!!

See you 18, 19 and 20 October 2019
