Background Paint: Touching Grass and Painting It

Room 207 | Aprilyn Cunanan, Grey Chen, Qianjiao Ma, Victoria Orolfo

AAPI women and background painters in indie, TV and feature animation will discuss finding the balance of painting for a fast pace production and making the necessary time to follow athletic passions such as marathon running, backpack hiking, roller-skating and outdoor/indoor rock climbing. In this panel, we'll explore the benefits of pursuing outdoor sports and its application to our craft. We will demo and lead our audience in our favorite hand and body stretches that will benefit any artists and office workers!
