We are looking for artists & assistants who love to entertain, chat with people and throw a party! The plus is that you'll be instructing people on how to paint - in a bar! Paint Nite Jacksonville is currently hiring and we are looking for the best teammates.
What is Paint Nite? Paint Nite elevates the popular BYOB drinking-and-painting concept by taking it out of fluorescent-lit studios and into charming restaurants and lounges. Basically, a master artist walks 35 people step-by-step through a painting while at a local bar. This is a painting PARTY, not a painting CLASS; these are social events with low-key painting instruction. Please check out www. paintnite.com and look at the Facebook page of our Boston events to better understand what we do.
If you have never painted before, or not since high school, don't be afraid to apply! We would rather show you how to paint than hire shy painters. If you have energy and love being the center of attention, we can work it out! Just let me know in your email why your personality is more important than painting experience and we'll go from there.
Some basic qualifications:
1. Must be outgoing, comfortable with a crowd, able to roll with the punches & handle challenges.
2. Must be able to break down a painting step-by-step (similar to Bob Ross's style - if you are too young to remember Bob Ross, Youtube him!).
3. Must be comfortable communicating with restaurant/bar staff.
4. Must have a large car or SUV to transport the equipment (easels, canvas, paint) from a storage space to the bar and back again (or have a large storage space in your home).
5. Must be able to do physical labor (lifting paint jugs and boxes of canvases).
6. Must be willing to work 2-4 events a week & at least one weekend night (nights 5:00pm-10pm).
7. Must be 21 (classes take place in bars).
8. Must be able to edit photos and upload photos to Google Drive.
If you love the arts, socializing and being the host of a party, this is the job for you!
To apply send us a brief cover letter/email explaining why you are the right fit for Paint Nite Jacksonville, 1-3 photos of your work, a resume or a link to your website (if applicable), as well as your contact info (please include your email address in the body of your email). You do not have to be a professional artist - we just want fun people who can break down a painting!
