Sipping N' Painting Hampden is a fun, local, family-owned, "paint and sip" studio in SE Denver! We are reopening after being closed to in-person classes due to COVID19, and will follow very strict precautions until the pandemic is officially over.

Please send your resume plus several photos of your painting. Employment interviews will be done on Zoom.

APPLICANTS MUST HAVE REGULAR AVAILABILITY FRIDAY - SUNDAY. Friday evening shifts begin promptly at 5:30pm and last four hours. Saturday and Sunday class times vary according to our calendar. (90% of our customers come in on the weekends.)

The Ideal Candidate:

  • Can work two or three 4-hour shifts per weekend.
  • Excellent communicator in English. Bi-lingual is a plus!
  • Must be 21 years of age or over.
  • 1 year teaching experience (any type)
  • Has painting portfolio (a few photos of previous paintings)
  • Has a positive attitude/team spirit
  • Is extroverted, high energy, friendly, cheerful and outgoing (former cheerleaders, camp counselors, college orientation leaders, preschool or kindergarten teachers, entertainers, scout leaders, etc., are the kind of personality we are looking for! This position would be great for self-employed artists, stay-at-home parents or college students looking for weekend work.) *
  • Punctual/ extremely reliable
  • Familiarity with popular forms of social media such as facebook and instagram
  • Has own transportation
  • Has flexible weekend schedule/ availability

  • Will consider getting a COVID19 vaccine before starting
  • We are an equal opportunity employer. We welcome people from every gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, language and culture, etc... both as customers and as employees!

Classes are high-energy, fast-paced and can be physically demanding. Everyone in the studio cleans, stocks paints and wine, etc. -- regardless of their title. There is a lot of walking back and forth on a hard floor (if you have foot or leg health problems, this might not be the job is not for you). In a given shift, there is as much time spent setting up and cleaning up than actual paint instruction.

Scheduling: This is supplemental work. Schedules are part-time only. The job will never be more than part-time, so please do not apply if you need less than 8 or more than 12 hours per week. There are no paid health, retirement, or vacation benefits. We are open holidays. This job is not

intended to support a family; rather it is a great opportunity for weekend supplemental income! Payment is made for hours worked. Classes are scheduled weeks in advance but may occasionally be canceled due to low enrollment, when employees may be called and told they are no longer needed.

Starting Compensation: We pay $80 plus tips per 4 hour shift to start. Merit increases available after 90 day probationary period, and at scheduled intervals. Tips are reported to the IRS. We never pay "under the table".

What are the perks? It's fun! The work culture is great! Customers are genuinely happy and excited to be in the studio. The working environment is fast-paced, high energy and never boring. Your art will be featured on our website and all over social media -- it is a great source of exposure for artists building their careers!

We know these requirements are substantial; we are fortunate to have a lot of interest in working at our studio. Interviews will be scheduled after an initial screening based on video introduction and resume.
