Muse Paintbar is hiring! We are looking for fun/energetic painting instructors to join our team.
Muse combines acrylic painting instruction with a beer/wine bar & light fare. We host 2-2.5 hour nightly events during which patrons will receive step-by-step instruction on a particular painting while socializing in a vibrant yet relaxing wine bar atmosphere. Check us out at www.MusePaintbar.com.
OUR CURRENT SITUATION
We are looking for 1-2 more artists for our studio in Lynnfield, MA. Weekend availability is key! We're looking for someone who can often work Fri/Sat/Sun, and 1-2 weeknights (either all of that or some combination of those days). We don't have a lot of demand weekdays during the day, so it's ok if you have a more standard job during normal "business hours."
Responsibilities will vary depending on whether you are the "Assistant" or the "Lead Instructor" for the session. In the beginning, you will be the "Assistant" more often than you will be the "Lead Instructor," since we like to ease people into the role. But we do expect everyone on our team to be able to instruct in front of groups of up to 50 people. Everyone on our team will both Lead and Assist.
When you're the instructor, you will be the primary person teaching the class how to paint the painting. You will be up on stage around 40% of the time (depending on your style, the specific painting, etc.) of a 2-2.5 hour session. When you're the assistant, you will be largely tending the bar (we serve just beer and wine, so don't need to know how to make any mixed drinks or anything) and helping the customers with their paintings (helping to add custom items to the painting, get people to desired color mixes, etc.).
The time commitment for each session is between 4.5-5 hours. Most of our sessions are at nights/weekends, so this works great as a second income or if you are a student. We also have some day sessions (nearly always on Saturday/Sunday and some on weekdays like work events). We're looking for people who can work somewhere between 2-4 days a week.
You will be paidper session.Then, there are some additional ways to make money like creating paintings for our paint library, helping with studio tasks, and selling artwork in our studio.
Our instructors will be able to use our venue to paint as much as desired (in fact, it would be encouraged). Additionally, we can display and sell some of your artwork (5-10 rotating pieces, depending on space) in our studios.
* Outgoing, personable, & fun
* Some formal training in the arts (ok if you're a current student or recent grad)
* Experience teaching art (especially to groups, but 1-on-1 instruction also good)
* Quick understanding of how to recreate and teach our paintings (schedule can be seen here: events.musepaintbar.com)
* Some experience working in a bar or restaurant
* Ability to be reliable and timely
* Laid back personality; likes to laugh and have fun (our team is young, fun, and energetic . . . we work hard, but we do it while telling jokes and having a great time!)
