About The Paint Mixer:

The Paint Mixer is Utah’s favorite local provider of creative adventures! We host public classes, private events, virtual parties and more at venues across Utah. Originally founded as a paint and sip studio, we have expanded our offerings to include a variety of creative events for our guests to enjoy. If you love instructing others and spreading creative joy, you may be the perfect fit for our team!

Responsibilities:

  • Teach, host and facilitate both public and private events at various locations in Wasatch Front and Summit County.

  • Time management - work with guests to answer questions, while maintaining pace of instruction, music and festive environment.
  • Professional demeanor and presence to easily connect and teach corporate clients and private events. These events often require a more personal approach, and can be longer in length due to presentations and socials, and must be able to “go with the flow”, be agile and responsive.
  • Pick up and return supplies to and/or from venues and our storage locker/warehouse.
  • Clean and re-organize to maintain the condition of supplies and equipment
  • Engage guests using photos and social media.

  • Reliable transportation - a car is a must. You will be responsible for transporting all the supplies needed for your events to and from our staging locations in Summit County and Salt Lake City.
  • A little bit of creative crossfit - Setting up and cleaning up events involves physical tasks, so you must be able to lift and carry up to 50 lbs. You may need to reorganize an event space, such as tables and chairs. You will also be required to stand/walk/dance for at least 4 hours. This also includes transporting supplies to and from events.
  • Skilled and/or proficient artist - Acrylic is most used, but as long as you are skilled with a medium, you can adjust.
