Job Description

We are looking to hire fun instructors to lead group "painting parties" in South Bay & Peninsula, primarily on weekday afternoons & weekends. Paint the Town is a mobile art studio that delivers these parties to guests at home, office, and restaurants. Check out our site to know more what we do:

You can set your own schedule and take on as many or as few events as you'd like. Our engagements are intimate (typically 10-20 guests), and our clientele are friendly and respectful. You'll have fun while also developing interpersonal skills and meeting different people. The ideal candidate is charismatic and reliable, with great communication and painting skills.
NOTE: We host these private events only by request of customers, so this is a gig-based job and there is no guaranteed schedule or number of events. That said, most instructors average 3-4 gigs per month.

COMPENSATION: $100 per event (2.5 hours), plus 25 cents per mile driven. Hourly rate is $30/hour for more than 2.5 hours spent onsite. Tolls and parking are reimbursed. Any tips earned are yours to keep.


  • Need a car, in order to drive to events between Redwood City and San jose
  • Have most weekdays free, from 1-7 PM to take parties (Tues-Friday)
  • Must be 21 or older, as you might be in the presence of beer and wine



  • Reliable and responsive. Punctuality and communication is a MUST
  • Outgoing and charismatic; able to engage with people individually and in large groups
  • Proficient at painting with acrylic. Preferably a Fine Arts student, but self taught is also accepted
  • Great communicator (in English). Must be able to break down complex techniques into simple, easy-to-understand steps
  • Patient and calm in stressful situations (e.g. loud groups, tough customers)



1) Where you currently live, and you willingness to drive around (with $0.25/mile compensation)

2) Whether you have a car and valid driver's license

3) Your work experience with painting and/or teaching

4) Your availability (days/times you're free to do potential painting parties)

5) Your email and phone number

Business Overview

Our Story

As an artist and DIY enthusiast, I started Paint the Town a year ago in order to share my passion with others. What began as casually giving art lessons has now blossomed into a party/events business that has hosted over 500 parties and gotten 140+ five-star Yelp reviews. Our main focus is delivering "paint & sip" parties to customers throughout California. We do a lot of corporate events and birthday parties for both kids and adults. We also offer face painting and caricature art.

The business is growing fast and I'm having trouble keeping up with demand. I'm looking to hire artists to deliver great experiences to customers, and they will be able to grow with the company. You will be able to hone your teaching, leadership, and event planning skills.

Why Work With Us?

- Fun and flexible job that encourages your personality to shine - Allows you to flex your creative muscles and network with people - Tips earned are yours to keep
