Splash Studio® Employment Opportunity: Bartist
Splash Studio® seeks energetic, motivated, and talented "Bartists" to assist with three-hour painting sessions, serve and wait on Mini-Painting customers, bar tend, and help with all aspects of Splash Studio operations. Qualified candidates should understand quality customer service, be quick on their feet with good problem solving skills, feel comfortable working behind a bar and mixing drinks (although bar tending experience is not required), be able to paint in a variety of styles and subject matter (abstract, realistic, portrait, landscape, etc.), and be able to multi-task.
Splash Studio is a painting bar. Come on in, grab a drink, and sit down in front of a canvas -- simple as that. At its core, Splash offers a three-hour experience with a local artist. That artist will guide you through an original painting, show you tips and tricks, and encourage you to take painting risks you never thought you had the skill to take. You can follow along with our (trendy, cool, hip) artists on staff who will be there to guide the stick-figured-challenged, or you can change up colors and techniques to make it your own. Or, just paint whatever moves you in the moment. We'll be there to get you another drink or more paint whenever you need it. After three hours with us, you'll walk out with a painting you love, and we'll take care of the cleanup.
To offer a unique social environment in which people can explore their creativity while supporting the local artistic community.
