compensation: $25-35 per/hour
employment type: part-time

We are searching for artists for face painting and balloon animals and for assisting characters at parties. Artist will provide BOTH face painting and balloon art services at children's parties and events (we teach you how to make the balloons--it's easy!!). WE ARE LOOKING TO TRAIN SOMEONE ON BALLOONS IMMEDIATELY (if you get your completed Questionnaire and completed Painting Test back to us right away, and if everything looks good on both of these) and for someone to do an on the job training session THIS WEEKEND (either 4/27/19 or 4/28/19.

Willingness to dress in the clown outfit (for increased pay, outfit provided by us) is a PLUS, but not required. Willingness to be a mascot character actress in addition to doing face painting and balloons is a PLUS, PLUS, but not required (that pays more than the face painting and balloons). We're also looking for artists who have flexibility/some availability during the week. Weekday bookings are sporadic, but we do occasionally have some weekday opportunities, so if you have a flexible schedule, even better. If you're available occasionally during the week, that will help supplement the weekend money.

Requirements: MUST be between the ages of 18-55. MUST be talented/skilled at painting. Be aware that the primary listing for this opportunity is in the Art/Media/Design category, so if you cannot PAINT (and drawing is not the same as painting) well, do not contact us. We will teach you how to make the balloons and we will teach you how to help a character, but we will not be teaching you how to paint. We will have you take a Painting Test to see what your skills are because our clients are expecting a certain level of skill. Painting does not mean house painting. MUST be consistently available every Saturday AND Sunday and you must be available to be booked both early and late in the day, as we do get early and late bookings (this means as early as 8 AM and as late as Midnight). Seriously, DO NOT contact us if you are not available EVERY Saturday/Sunday all day. This is weekend work. We understand needing to take a weekend off every 2-3 months, but otherwise, be prepared to work at any time of the day on Saturdays and most Sundays. Availability during the week is a plus. Bilingual (English/Spanish) a PLUS, but not required. MUST have current, valid Texas Driver's License. MUST have own reliable vehicle and be willing to drive yourself to/from parties all around Houston and its surrounding areas, so there will be a good amount of driving. It is best if you're fairly centrally located in Houston. MUST have a pleasant personality and work well with children and must be friendly and outgoing because our clients expect a friendly artist. If you're quiet or shy, or if you're not a talkative, friendly person, this is not for you.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to read over this ad twice to make sure that you really meet these requirements. After re-reading the ad and you really do meet these requirements, email us with your direct email address and a good contact phone number for you and we can get you started on the Questionnaire and Painting Test. DO NOT send us your resume unless you have painting experience listed on your resume. DO NOT SEND YOUR RESUME. Be sure to get your Questionnaire and Painting Test completed and emailed to us immediately so you can learn the balloons so you can be booked immediately!!

This is a great supplemental part-time gig that will leave you feeling great at the end of the day--there's nothing quite like bringing a smile to a child's face (and getting paid great money to do it!). You will make $25 per hour (+ tips when applicable) when dressed in the company uniform. Please note that this rate is for the time that you are actually working with the kids. For example, if you are booked for a 1-4 PM and a 5-7 PM you would make $125 (plus possible tips) for that day. The higher pay is for an artist dressed as a clown for face painting and balloons.

The ideal artist would be very skilled at painting, have a flexible schedule during the week and availability every weekend, and would be centrally located in Houston.

If you meet these requirements, contact us at with your 1)first and last name, 2)your phone number, 3)a good email address for you and 4)include in your email what specific painting skills you have. If you don't include all 4 of these things in your email, we won't be contacting you back. Then the first step will be the Questionnaire, then the 2nd step will be the Painting Test.
