Art Instructor Event Host

Art Instructor Event Host

Paint Nite hosts drinking and painting parties at bars, pubs, and restaurants across 100 cities worldwide.

We are rapidly expanding and looking for peppy and entertaining artists/painters to lead Paint Nite events, typically from 7:00 to 9:00pm.

To get a sense of what you’ll do, check out this video.

Paint Nite will give you an event kit which includes everything you need to run the event (canvas, table easels, brush, paint etc.). You (and your assistant) will arrive at the venue one hour to one and a half hours prior to the event to set up; you’ll lead the event for about two hours; after you would clean up with your assistant. You would also be required to take pictures of customers and post these pictures on Paint Nite’s Facebook page.

To become an artist you must be legal drinking age, have a peppy personality (after all, it’s a party), be an effective teacher (able to break down the painting into easy to follow steps), and have a vehicle and driver’s licence. You also need to be available to work three to five Paint Nite events per week. If you can do more that’s fantastic, you will earn more money and have more fun.

Please submit a resume with three examples of your work in JPG, PDF or PNG formats.
