Color Cocktail Factory - job listings

Job Description

We are looking for great artists (and great people) to work in the Pilsen studio. Weekend availability is key; we’re looking for someone who can work a few weekdays but also Fri/Sat/Sun (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” or “Co-Teacher” 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.

When you are the instructor, you will be the primary person teaching the class how to paint the painting. You will be executing the painting in steps while going around, and helping those who are struggling with their piece. When you are the assistant, you will be largely help people get started, pass out materials, and help instructor with setting up the classes and cleaning the brushes at the end of class. You will be mostly working on weekends, and some weekdays

$20 per hour

Depending on your schedule, between 6 to 32 hours a week

* Over 21 years old* Outgoing, personable, & fun

* 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!)
