Grumbacher Paint is looking to hire accomplished acrylic painters to teach two-hour workshops at a major retailer in locations across the United States and Canada. Artist must be capable of demonstrating a still life, landscape, seascape, and floral. We have developed a flexible curriculum in acrylics for an artist to use or adapt to fit to his or her style. We plan to conduct approximately one to four workshops per store per month and the artist will have flexibility in scheduling. Compensation is $100 per workshop, and teaching materials will be provided to the artist at no cost.
Please have anyone who is interested email Daniel McGloin at email@example.com with examples of works in acrylics, a resume, and contact information. (Chartpak is a manufacturere of fine art supplies. Grumbacher, Koh-I-Noor, Higgins Ink, and Clearprint are some of our brands.)
Thank you in advance for any help you might provide.
