Our art-room facilitator's main responsibility is to help the parents and children (mostly toddlers) who paint during our "Messy Art" hours by getting them materials & smocks, hanging up paintings, and orienting people who are new to the space. The facilitator also cleans up in the art-room, does a wide range of general cleaning in our main space, and is trained in basic register and phone duties. We are looking to add one facilitator to our team to take on at least one regular shift as described above (with the potential to add additional shifts). In addition to the duties listed above, the ideal candidate would also teach one or more of our session-based Messy Mixed Media classes for children ages 2-5 with accompanying parents or caregivers (curriculum provided) and have experience specifically relevant to this, have strong customer service skills and experience, and a willingness to take on desk shifts along with teaching shifts.
The ideal person for this job is very dependable, a good communicator, loves children and has professional experience working with them, has a friendly demeanor, and is outgoing, energetic, efficient, and very detail-oriented. An early childhood education and/or visual arts background is a requirement for this position, and a combination of the two is ideal. Customer service experience is also required.
